Ok, I just got the impression that some cmd. line stuff was needed?

But that's cewl, I'll stop worrying that I can't use 802.11g with 
m0n0wall then, and start looking for a good standalone AP for this 
kind of setup instead :)

Anyone know of something they can recomend? (I would need a "g" or 
"b+" type AP with good WEP support, but otherwise I'd prefer stability 
over features, seeing as m0n0wall has got everything I need.)

Talking about alternate stuff: Anyone happen to have any experience 
with those "converters" that will allow a TP LAN to "tunnel" through a 
normal AC powerline? (I'd like to know if this works well enough to be 
another alternative, besides wireless, to drilling holes in my walls: 
Is it fast? Does it do other than point-to-point etc.)
