Gnuveau takes a little different attitude towards wireless access points than usual. We think that instead of a seperate 802.11b device to provide wireless access, a better job can be done with a pci or pcmcia card with a PrismII chipset, the Debian/GNU Linux operating system, and a HostAP enabled Linux kernel, like Gnuveau's Memome. With this combination, the wireless card in your computer becomes a wireless access point, with many more options than an off the shelf wireless access point, such as IPSec strong encryption and firewalling for security, ethernet bridging, proxying, and many others. Also included are the standards that you would expect, like DHCP and NAT, as well as NoCat/Radius authentication, useful for public access points.
