dare say it won' t work with Linux. Which is not true because I got it working with linux using
wpa-supplicant (xsupplicant also works but is less stable). Now I wonder if there are any plans for
m0n0wall to support the 802.1x authentication protocol (md5 first stage, ssl ttls second stage) ?
This means the WAN side must support it. I' d really like to use m0n0wall because I' d like to make
use of it' s ipsec tunnel functions. By splitting this over two tears it costs me more hardware,
more electra (waste of environmental resources) etc.  thus my question!
