It's on my TODO list, but I want to do some more tests first.
The Asus AP1700-S5 does officially list Linux as supported OS,
(and it's a really nice piece of server hardware, too), so they
should be definitely interested in fixing this. It might be not
so clear who's to blame for this problem, though.
Is anyone from ASUSTeK Computers Inc. around here on this list?
