I'm thinking about building a "m0n0AP" type distro. Something just for
doing wireless access points. I run a WISP and I'm using m0n0wall on
my relays. There are a lot of things that I would like to change. So
the best thing to do is build a whole new type of distro. I like the
m0n0wall interface, so it would be cool be able to keep it.
This is all just a thought right now. But maybe I should start hacking
One thing that is true. The HostAP drivers are not very good. Still
lots of problems with them.
