 Subject:  1.3b1 -status report + minor bug(?)
 Date:  Mon, 18 Dec 2006 16:49:40 +0100
Ok, I got the 1.3b1 running smoothly on a wrap board.

Upgrade went fine without hassles.

Tested features:

Boot + upgrade
DHCP server
Captive portal with local user manager and bandwidth control
Traffic shaper (only trough CP)
WiFi atheros (see below!)
DNS forwarder
Basic routing (wifi to internet via WAN)
Traffic graph

Wifi (has my special attention :)

Ive put in an atheros ABG miniPCI card to try it out, a senao
NL-5354MP+ARIES2 (AR5213A chip) 100 mW
The card works perfectly, I only found two little glitches.

Minor bug(?): Channel 12 and 13 on B/G are not selectable. This probably has
to do with not configuring a country code. I think it defaults to US so
channel 12 and 13 are not selectable. I don't know if this is a limitation
of the driver, in BSD or in the m0n0 implementation ?

Also if I put the card on a 11a turbo channel, it is not longer visible for
client PC's. Im not sure if this is a limitation in all the A wifi clients I
used or somewhere in m0n0 .. Ill try to find another 11A turbo AP to test
the clients with somewhere this week.

Anyway, so far so good :) great work all ! im really excited and gonna test
loads more this week.
