Thanks poma, I had a look at those pages and they don't seem to help me
much (unless I have read them wrong) as they seem to be specifically
aimed at router support rather than adapter support which is my issue.
The Belkin router I have also appears to not be supported by wrt either,
so it looks like I might be behind the 8 ball on both fronts.
The afore-mentioned modules/chipsets (miniPCIe/(QC)A988/0/2) are an integral part of some
of these routers,
actually they are intended for them.
"Attention : Atheros 11ac radio can't be used in PC or laptop, as atheros do not
release such driver."
"WLE900V5-23 MUST use external 5V power, WPJ344 can provide external 5V.
What I mean WLE900V5-23 must use 5V by using 5V cable from WPJ344"
However WLE600V5-23 probably needs only Mini PCI Express / PCI Express Adapter for PC.
Of course, it's up to you to check it - ask retailer and devs.
Everything related to this thread you do so at your own risk and expense.
Good luck again.
