According to one individual @ seattlewireless.net,
Beware with DWL-520 and ADM8211 (DWL-520c1), this chipset has a very bad receiver sensitivity. Althrought in manual sensitivity is -84dBm i cant even associate with -54dBm. If i use exact the same transmission line and antenna ( i only change DWL-520C1 to DWL-520 rev B and of course change driver) the radio associate like magic with excelent signal 46dB SNR!! I wrote to Admtek they send to be linux driver(binary) but not more any help if i can change sensitivity by soft. This card is to me for indoor use only and in the same room without walls (IMHO).
I'm writing this sitting about 1 block away from a public access point using a SMC 2532W-B 200mw pc card and a 2.4 ghz flat panel antenna! THIS REALLY ROCKS! No more waiting for front row parking!!! AWESOME! Of course it is unsecure but still rocks!
Wonder if I can warm my pastry in the morning with this setup...
