as we (or some of us) know, Internet Sharing in Mango requires the WiFi chipset to be able to work in AP mode.
I found that OEMs were using two chipsets: Broadcom 4325 (a/b/g, BT, FM) and 4329 (a/b/g/n, BT, FM).
The difference is not just in the missing N in 4325, but also lack of AP mode.
I will be checking today all (most) of the devices that I will get my hands on their ROMs to see, what chipset they have and make list of them here.
