I'm wanting to switch back to m0n0wall on my AP's because of the
Captured Portal support.  I had to switch to Pebble a few months ago
because m0n0wall had too many wireless issues.  Unfortunately NoCat
does not work well at all.  I have constant problems with the "login
loop" bug and no fix in sight.

I'm wondering if the wireless issues are fixed in the new beta version
with FBSD 4.10 installed.  The issues are HostAP locking up when a
client goes to Power Save Mode.  I had to reboot the AP to fix it, and
it would happen at random.  Pebble's HostAP mode does not have this
problem and I'm wondering if the FBSD's HostAP mode has been fixed

I also have a few questions:

1) Is it possible to run the captured portal for some users and allow
IPSec clients through for others?  I want to tunnel through the
firewall to my VPN server so IPsec clients don't have to login using
the web browser.  (I have Soekris AP's firewalling the wireless, a VPN
server for IPsec, and another firewall at the T1.)

2) How many IPSec clients will m0n0wall support?  I'm going to run it
on a dual 450MHz system. Usernames and passwords are coming from a
FreeRADIUS server.  I'm planning to have less than 100 users.
