I've used it on m0n0wall for months without a problem even played
multiplayer.  The only tricking part I'm aware is if you have another OPT
interface and turn on the captive portal.  Even if you have the MAC address
as an exception, you have to use the Opera browser first in order to get
online elsewhere.  If you don't have Opera (I got it when it was free), then
I'm not sure what you can do if you have captive portal turned on.

I noticed that pfSense does their captive portal differently as I've been
testing it out for the last week now.  If you give a MAC address exception
for the captive portal, it is connected right away without having to open a
browser first.
