Thank you for this interview and highlighting this project. I don't have time to do as much free project investigation as I used to (or would like to), so I really enjoy these features.
Wireless drivers for Haiku are actually ported FreeBSD drivers. I wonder how long until wireless N drivers are ported across to Haiku.
802.11n on FreeBSD has been possible for at least two years now with the iwn driver (imported from OpenBSD). It was added in the buildup to 8.1, but there was a backport to the 7.x series. I think it's awesome that the Atheros people are working closely with Adrian to write this driver; as others have pointed out this work goes far beyond just the FreeBSD ecosystem. Thanks guys for your hard work. Edited 2011-12-28 15:05 UTC
OpenBSD has drivers for several 802.11n capable devices, but they only work on 802.11a/b/g mode, not n.
There are 802.11 stack changes required to properly support 802.11n and it's a fair amount of work.
