Yes it is a half bad unit. If you make changes to routing or firewall rules, you need to unplug everything, power cycle it, say a prayer and hope it works. I never got it working correctly at a previous location. Over here it works, but have no need for it anymore, since a FreeBSD wireless router is doing it's job. There are many advantages of using a full-blown computer for (wireless) routing/nat/firewall, most notably the diagnostics that are available. Our FreeBSD nat is using: PPP/ADSL to provider: f...@pci0:2:8:0: class=0x020000 card=0x30138086 chip=0x24498086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Intel Corporation' device = '82559ER 82559ER Integrated 10Base-T/100Base-TX Ethernet Controller' class = network subclass = ethernet Wireless: a...@pci0:2:10:0: class=0x020000 card=0x7057144f chip=0x0013168c rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Atheros Communications Inc.' device = 'AR5212, AR5213 802.11a/b/g Wireless Adapter' class = network subclass = ethernet Wire, soon to be upgraded to Gbit: x...@pci0:2:11:0: class=0x020000 card=0x100010b7 chip=0x920010b7 rev=0x78 hdr=0x00 vendor = '3COM Corp, Networking Division' device = '3C905 CX-TX-M Fast EtherLink for PC Management NIC' class = network subclass = ethernet ISC dhcpd, pf including altq provide the services.

Currently using WEP, but that'll change when lagg(4) will support WPA on wireless interfaces or when I get tired of waiting and decide to netgraph it myself somehow. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
