Thank you Jouni for your reply. But, do you think that Intersil or Texas Instrument or any other vendor will release a firmware that supports 802.11e MAC protocol ? If so, have you any interest in implementing HCF MAC functions as a driver under Linux?

I don't think current station firmware versions support this.
