Hi there,

New user to this users group.  Just wanted to provide my feedback on 
this great product.  I'm a support engineer at a wireless startup 
company.  We make products that provide wifi coverage to entire cities 
and downtown areas for public safety networks as well as WISPs.  In my 
job I need to support customers that use full blown service gateways 
from the likes of Nomadix, Pronto, Bluesocket and etc with our product 
line.  I'm always amazed how some of these products which are very 
costly in some cases don't even work as reliably as the monowall.  I'm 
sure there feature rich with alot more functions, but at least they 
should be able to do the basic stuff well.  There seems to always be 
some sort of an incompatibility with these service gateways primarily 
with their ability to support relayed DHCP requests.  The monowall has 
always proven to be very reliable in my testing of it.  And as such for 
the mom and pop customers, I've often times recommended a monowall as a 
service gateway of choice instead of the expensive others.  It's become 
the defacto service gateway in the customer support organization.  Even 
now within our field and sales organization a required piece of hardware 
is a soekris net4801 with monowall installed.  Often times our sales 
engineers would need to demonstrate an application that involves DHCP, 
captive portal, and authentication and without the use of a monowall 
that would not be easily possible.  I can't say enough good stuff about 
the monowall :-)  Keep up the great work.

Of course I have a few questions, but I'll save that for another e-mail.
