Sorry I was unclear.  I meant I hadn't had time to check the
code for the hardware interface.  Kinda assumed the driver would
be using the most efficient means the hardware makes available.

Email to ADMtek actually found a person.  He stated that source
release is under "internal discussion," so there's hope.  The
binary driver floating around is for an old kernel version (2.4.18),
and so is quite useless to me.

Thanks for the responses.  I guess that either I wait for ADMtek
or a competitor, or I give up and get a separate access point.
