Lies, all lies! My P200/32mB RAM with 6.0-RELEASE acts as an AP or a
client with WEP, WPA, etc with no issues.
Thanks for your opinion :)

Good idea, does it lag at all? I'm thinking of configuring that.
Yes it lags a little, but nothing compared for opera running natively
on laptop. Normally, websites
renders pic by pic.. but with this configuration, it all just jumps on
the screen instantly
after short period time of 'thinkin' which is about 1sec. I think that
100Mbit would be a great improvement.

If you're really having issues... then yeah.

Depends if you live around people or in the middle of nowhere. The
latter is the case for me, so I don't worry about security.

It'd be fine, you just need proper firewalls, anti-virus, etc.
