Thank you very much for your reply. One advantage I can think of using
802.11s+HWMP is that theoretically it can mesh with other 802.11s
From IPQ4019 firmware perspective, I see "2 lines" (for lack of a
better word) of firmware:
1) Firmware inside QSDK (QCA closed source?) for AP-DK04.1-C1 based
2) Firmware from kvalo/linux-firmware
Are these "2 lines" of firmware essentially the same?
