Hightech WLAN

shit happens! Gestern meine WLAN-Karten bekommen, eingebaut und mich hinterher (sic!) auf Treibersuche begeben und folgendes gefunden:

“The RealTek 8139 PCI NIC redefines the meaning of ‘low end.’ This is probably the worst PCI ethernet controller ever made, with the possible exception of the FEAST chip made by SMC. The 8139 supports bus-master DMA, but it has a terrible interface that nullifies any performance gains that bus-master DMA usually offers.”

Ratet, welcher Chipsatz auf meiner DLink drauf ist… Ist zwar ein “anderer”, aber hoffen lässt mich das trotzdem nicht!

Daemon News : FreeBSD Wi-Fi IPsec easy-setup guide

“The author shows how setting up an IPsec tunneling connection between a MS-Windows host with wireless Ethernet and a FreeBSD NAT gateway allows a mobile host to have a secure and encrypted connection over an inherently insecure wi-fi radio network. Anyone sniffing the access point on the secure wi-fi connection between your laptop and your gateway should only see packets going to and from the host and the gateway in encrypted form.”
