29 Opensource firmware for BCM43xx devices.
30
31 Do _not_ select this, unless you know what you are doing.
32 The Opensource firmware is not suitable for embedded devices, yet.
33 It does not support QoS, which is bad for AccessPoints.
34 It does not support hardware crypto acceleration, which is a showstopper
35 for embedded devices with low CPU resources.

37 If unsure, select the "stable" firmware.
