The only issue I've had with the dongle I mentioned running run(4) is
that the cannot achieve outbound speeds above 80 KB/s, while I can get
around 1000 KB/s inbound while running in hostap (I have not tested it
otherwise).  Not exactly sure why yet, but it makes using it as an
access point mostly useless.  Hoping to get a chance to investigate it
more in the near future.
