Perhaps it is just me, but if you're going to do some hacking, why not
pick better hardware than that? B+ is pretty brain dead, and has poor
specs. There are clearly better alternatives out there.

1) Minitars' new ap, (incomplete) source available already

2) Netgear's new G APs & routers, these already run linux, and do it using
a G chipset with a maunufacturer-supported, open source, driver project.

That sure looks good compared to beating your head against acx100,
especially when we know the results will never be that good anyway.
