So I’ve been playing with m0n0wall for … a few hours at best. And, it just works. It just works well. I now have a separate DMZ in which all the wireless traffic sits, a whole mess of firewall rules, port forwarding, and traffic shaping. I’ve seen identical (sometimes better) performance than the “hardware” Netgear “router” we were using (now relegated to being a wireless AP only). I’m very pleased. We’ll see how its stability compares in the long run (the Netgear box was somewhat flaky, though I still want to blame optonline, not the box itself) keeping the connection live and so forth.
