I especially liked:

"However, the steel case itself makes an effective shield for the internal
antennas on any installed wireless card, which will hinder wireless range
and performance."


"This, and an external antenna, would easily improve the range of a
net45xx /m0n0wall based Wireless Access Point."

Does this guy seriously believe the range of an internal antenna in a
metal case is nonzero? :-)
