Thanks Pau and Leonardo

I'm adding my own replies in case anyone else later has some other use
for this data.

I'd very much appreciate it if people from other networks (Ninux,
Freifunk, Funkfeuer, awmn ...) would add their answers to this
mini-survey. If all goes well we will all benefit from the existance of
this low cost multi-radio router. The more data we have, the more cases
we'll be able to cover.
