thanks to Felix from the OpenWRT project the Atheros driver has that feature 
(as you know). Broadcom is a much harder cases because the drivers a binary 
only. We mostly use the famous WRT54G and its derivates for our network. Sven-
Ola managed to write patch for that binary driver of the WRT. There also is an 
open source driver project for the broadcom chips but I'm not sure where it 
I never experimented with Ralink myself, so I can't answer that. I'm sure 
Elektra could jump in here.  :-)
