This is fun! I build a little firewall box out of an old PII333 machine. Put in three networkcards (internet, local lan, and dmz) and now I bought an Linksys WMP11. It took some yelling and screaming before it worked, but now it does!
I got it all working using Debian Stable, after quite some experiments with the LEAF Bering one-floppy distribution with the hostap_pci.o that Jacques Nilo compiled. This version was probably not compiled with the right headers (complained about version 12 <> version 13) and it crashed my firewall hard.
Now I used Debian Stable, and I got everything working. I did have to compile my own kernel before the latest hostap stopped complaining when insmodded it. But ok.
Only.. When I enable WEP, I got this nice message (and no packets getting through:)
