While it might be fast, I'm seeing issues with the wireless-test package and WPA-PSK/TKIP connections.
I tested the wireless-test package on a RB500 in ap-bridge mode against WPA-PSK/TKIP Windows-XP
clients and could not get the clients to connect (the RB500 was logging errors about "group key timeouts").
I'll investigate this in more detail and contact support@ with the usual supout etc.

Thanks all

Tom - do post your problems/results here too.
If we're going to test this seriously it's best that we pool results, and that'll help MT get the problems resolved.

IMHO this "CPU-friendly" Nstreme is the way to go for MT, but needs to be debugged swiftly.

Well, OK, could not get the WPA-PSK/TKIP stuff to work.
Here's what is logged by the router
09:32:33 wireless,info wlan1: 00:04:23:76:D7:6C connected
09:32:34 wireless,info wlan1: disconnected 00:04:23:76:D7:6C, decided to deauth: group key update timeout (16)
09:32:34 wireless,info wlan1: 00:04:23:76:D7:6C connected

09:32:41 wireless,info wlan1: data from unknown device 00:04:23:76:D7:6C, sent deauth
09:32:45 wireless,info wlan1: 00:04:23:76:D7:6C connected
09:32:46 wireless,info wlan1: disconnected 00:04:23:76:D7:6C, decided to deauth: group key update timeout (16)
09:32:53 wireless,info wlan1: data from unknown device 00:04:23:76:D7:6C, sent deauth
09:32:59 wireless,info wlan1: 00:04:23:76:D7:6C connected
09:32:59 wireless,info wlan1: disconnected 00:04:23:76:D7:6C, decided to deauth: group key update timeout (16)
09:33:06 wireless,info wlan1: data from unknown device 00:04:23:76:D7:6C, sent deauth
this continues forever.

I've tested this with the builtin Intel card of a "Centrino" Notebook using the Intel PROset drivers as well as with an Orinocco PCMCIA card with Odyssey client for WPA. Makes no difference, both lead to the same error shown above.
