Paul told me you were researching how to get out of the box WiFi support
in Replicant (This means that Replicant doesn't ship non-free firmware).

I don't know what you did on your side.

On mine, I've started documenting the issue here:

I think ath9k claims need to be verified:
-> Are all the chips really that big?
-> Does it consume that much power? Was it ever measured?

Maybe it also exist in mini-pcie formats:
The mini-pcie connector also expects some pins to be the USB data pins
(D+ and D-), so 3G modems are connected trough USB.
I should write a mail about the implications of that on the
gnu-linux-libre mailing list, for laptops.

Also chips targeting the IOT market sounds promising, so they could be
looked into. I've mentioned one on the wiki.
