I tested on a Net4501 found an issue with console reverting to 9600 -
instead of detecting the speed of the hardware. This was originally
address in 1.2b1. 

Console speed set to 19200, 8N1 in BIOS. HyperTerm set at 19200 see the
BIOS post - then garbage when the OS boots. If I change HyperTerm to
9600 I can see the menu. If I reboot when the HyperTerm is set to 9600,
I get garbage while the BIOS Posts - but I can see the OS boot.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Beta 1.3b1 released

Hello everyone,

the long wait is over - the first FreeBSD 6.x-based version of
m0n0wall, 1.3b1, is ready! After the contest idea proved not to be
the right way to get m0n0wall updated, I decided to do it myself,
taking Dinesh Nair's initial efforts as a starting point - the focus
was clearly on making everything work and not on adding new features,
but still, we can already enjoy some of the improvements that 6.x
brings. Here's what's new:

- changed base system to FreeBSD 6.2-RC1 -> better support for new
hardware, Ethernet NICs, etc.

- Atheros wireless cards are finally supported -> wireless-related
webGUI pages have been improved

- generic-pc-cdrom: configuration may now also be stored on an USB
memory stick
(booting m0n0wall (generic-pc) from USB memory sticks should now also
work on most PCs)

I've put a lot of work into making sure that everything works and
behaves as in 1.22/1.23b1, and most features have already been
tested, but still - this is a beta version, and some things might not
yet work as intended. Back up your configuration file first, just to
be safe. It is possible to upgrade to 1.3b1 from 1.2 and up via the
webGUI. Downgrades from 1.3b1 to 1.2x should also work fine.

Detailed change log and downloads:


Work on the new concept for m0n0wall is also going well, and with any
luck, a proof-of-concept implementation will be available in February.

Have fun,
