TDD ban 48 at 1W watt, correct.

Both options would be great. Single channel and dual channel (CA).

For 2.4 ghz the frequency range is 2400 - 2500. ISM band.

Re: Port Mirroring

This is supported on some RouterBOARDs that have appropriate switch chips that support port mirroring. For example RB450G and RB750
Would it be possible for you to extend this feature to any kind of network interfaces using software instead of the hardware chips?
