The reason I thought of using IPSec is because the EPIA mobos I have feature the
VIA C3 CPUs that have Padlock technology. (Meaning they can do AES encryption
in hardware already). And since FreeBSD 6.0 Release has listed this feature as being
supported, I naturally assumed it would be cool to use it in VPN role.
Anyway, I looked around the FreeBSD's Hardware Compatibility list and noticed that
some of those wireless cards may not use Atheros chips in some versions.
(eg : I hear that some use Texas Instruments, Atheros, and PRISM ones in
three different versions!)
Is there a brand of wireless NIC that is guaranteed to be using the Atheros based solution?
(Because I don't wanna buy something and end up finding out that it ain't using an Atheros
chipset anymore because the manufacturer changed chipsets because of economic reasons).
