Because I haven't been able to get back to sleep, and my damn WAP was acting up, I decided to show it who's boss and take it apart. (The 802.11b one was/is rock-stable, so it's not like I'm going to be without intarweb.)

Turns out the thing (AirLink 101 AR420W) has an Atheros AR2313 / AR2112 combination, which has been popping up a fair bit as of late, with possibly some NetBSD support arriving soon, as it's supposed to be similar to the AR531x. It'd be nice to have a working WAP, assuming that the Marvell 88E6060 has support. There's only 29LV160 2MB flash, and 8MB of RAM, though. Tight fit.

If I leave for work Real Soon, I can get a parking spot close to my building. Woo.

And just to redeem the post a bit: if y'all haven't seen Doctor Steel, you should. Especially aalauber.
