I updated my comBIOS to 1.27a and updated m0n0wall to the latest beta,
1.2b3, but this is still happening.  Does anyone have any ideas at
all?  I would hate to think that my $25 Netgear WAP is better than my
$410 Soekris+m0n0wall WAP.

Here is the error I'm seeing *after* the comBIOS and m0n0wall updates.


m0n0wall console setup

Does anyone else have problems with m0n0wall and wireless access?
Every time I download a file from one of my wireless systems, m0n0wall
freaks out.  Here is what I am seeing right now.

I'm using  m0n0wall 1.11 built on Thu Nov 11 23:02:41 CET 2004

Should I downgrade to 1.0?  Should I upgrade to a beta version?

Is it possible that my miniPCI card from Netgate.com is defective?
