Please excuse my behaviour I'm not too familiar with mailing lists so
I missed that one.
Anyways the issues I had using firmware 18.104.22.168 came within minutes
after connection was established with an access point.
As far as things go the new firmware seems to work just fine. But I've
had a bit setback with my system in other areas so focus hasn't been
on testing the compat drivers as you mentioned. As soon as I get
things in order I will and post the results here.
Thanks again for the help.
