Hello Peter, all:

This must be the problem.  I looked over the archives and noticed
people using net4501/4801 w/vpn1411 but I never saw any benchmark
results until I tried it myself...  I thought it was working fine
because m0n0wall listed the card and it shows up in dmesg:

$ dmesg
...
root at nb dot neon1 dot net:/usr/src/sys/compile/M0N0WALL_NET48XX
...
hifn0 mem 0xa0008000-0xa000ffff,0xa0004000-0xa0005fff,0xa0003000-0xa0003fff
irq 11 at device 14.0 on pci0
hifn0: Hifn 7955, rev 0, 32KB dram, 64 sessions
...

I hope I didn't buy $316 worth of cards I can't use with m0n0wall, I
should have verified with the FreeBSD 4.9 hardware list (although I'm
not really BSD savvy).  I heard the Hi/fn 7951 chip on the vpn1201 is
being EOL'd.  Where should I go from here?

James
