Linux wireless regulatory domains

Linux wireless regulatory domains I had a case where I had an embedded system that should act as a WiFi Access Point on the 5GHz band. The HW was capable and the system managed to act as a client to 5GHz networks, so everything looked good. However, the system could not create an access point on some frequencies. How is it that? It's all about regulatory domains! Regulatory domains Radio regulations is something that applies to all devices that make transmissions in the radio spectrum. cover

ath10k QCA6584 and Wireless network stack

ath10k QCA6584 and Wireless network stack ATH10K is the mac80211 wireless driver for Qualcomm Atheros QCA988x family of chips, and I'm currently working [1] with the QCA6584 chip which is an automotive graded radio chip with PHY support for the abgn+ac modes. The connection interface to the chip is SDIO which is hardly supported for now, but my friend and kernelhacker, Erik Strömdahl [2] , has got his hands dirty and is currently working on it. cover
