Dear all (Jouni),
I want to try to make 4 WLAN cards in a full duplex link

Here is reply that I received from John Kozubik (Thanks John)



It is not possible right now - in order to use netgraph one2many with
network cards the cards must support sending their traffic as arbitrary
MAC addresses, which the firmware on most modern Lucent/Cisco 802.11b
cards will not allow you to do.

I think you could do it with a Prism firmware basd card, but I have not
tried it. The steps necessary to configure the netgraph portion of it are
included in my freebsd list postings.

My first question: I use Linux RH 7.3 and I am not familiar with bsd. Will bridging do the trick or some patches and additional modules are needed (one2many??, netgraph??)? And Second: network cards the cards must support sending their traffic as arbitrary
MAC addresses. This is true when speaking of Prism cards, isnít it?
