WL1273 on 2.6.34
What is the best driver to use for a TIWI5 through SDIO on a 2.6.34 ?
Currently we are using the WILINK6 184.108.40.206 driver but we are experiencing some issues of stability when using the 5Ghz.
Better to use wl12xx from compat-wireless. But before you need to add all required patches into the kernel.
Maybe I missed some patches but I can't find a way to add the support of SDIO on the wl1271 driver on 2.6.34.
We are now using the open source driver (Linux 2.6.37) and using standard SDIO driver approach that is we use the MMC driver that is part of the kernel and only adding thin layer to adopt it to the WLAN driver API. In the WiLink6 release that you are using we have proprietary SDIO driver that does all the work and we don’t have other SDIO driver that is better, but again with the latest releases we have we are using the MMC driver that is already part of the kernel.
any way even with the proprietary SDIO driver we did not see any stability issues, can you elaborate on the issues you see?
