I've been doing research on N cards for last 2 years :) Here is the link to
the chipset summary that we were able toput together about a year ago (I'f
some one wanna add more cards, let me know and ill give you password to
input page)

Point is the earlier pre-N draft N cars where build with "internal" driver
so even if you have regular say atheros driver (supported in mono I believe)
the card would operate as MIMO. However, the standard itself (current
version of .11n revision) says that device has to combine reflected radio
signals... which means we can use either card CPU to do algorithms ==> more
expansive cartds or we can use PC to do calculation ==> new drivers for new
chipset are needed. 

SUMMARY: Old versions of atheros mimo cards should work on mono w/ old
driver (they are a bit big, didn't fit WRAP. Don't know about ALIX)

Also SENAO released theur "smaal" mimo card recently, I dint try it yet but
I bvelive its only comercialy useful solution out there, since it has
acceptable dimensions (unfortunatlyy it supots only 2 antennas comparing to
native atheros cards that have 4 antennas)

PS: Sorry for typos... its kinda dark in here

Yes, I'm waiting too. It would be good to have some idea about how much
'draft' and how much 'N' it supports..
