I was looking on the wiki just to see if any decision has been made on
the Wifi chipsets to go into the next version of the openmoko.
Although I suggested the SyChip devices (admittedly only to have the
chance to win a Neo), I should say a couple of things.
I do a lot of arm development, and my company has been using a usb
version of the Zydas chip, and I have absolutely nothing but good things
to say about it. It's incredibly reliable. I've had it connected to a G
wireless network without any hiccups for weeks on end. I've built it and
changed the source a bit myself, and have never encountered any issues.
Now that I read that it can act also as an access point, I would almost
definitely say to choose that chipset. I say almost, because I haven't
had any development experience myself with any of the other chips
mentioned, except for the Ralink, and that I had some problems with.
