Does rt2571w on PCI-E cards support AP mode?

I see from this http// ... mode_Howto
that AP mode "will not work with Ralink's USB chips"

My question Does this apply to a PCI-E card that uses
"Ralink RT2571W MAC/BBP with RT2528 Transceiver"
see http//

Please pardon if that is a dumb-ish question, but I'm not familiar with how using the USB-oriented RT257x chip on a PCI-E card interacts with the status message issue mentioned in the HowTo.

My goal here is to build an Atom-based Mini-ITX system that can provide a WiFi AP. The above linked PCI-E is looking like my best bet, but I'd appreciate other suggestions.
