Re: Using Debian as an Access Point?

Well most consumer access points are crap: I tried the following devices:
I for my part would recommend a decent access point WITHOUT any routing
functions and a seperate router (best would be a linux box).
Overkill. Linksys WAP11 or similar. No routing, not brain dead. Can
support WPA and wpa_supplicant can do the client side on Linux. Cheap,
nothing to maintain (other than maybe the once-in-a-while firmware
update for really odd-ball problems, rare anymore...), simple. Done.
There is a linux based wireless router from linksys, but I don't have
any experiences with it. But I would expect that the community can
improve the software.
Already done. Google. Numerous community and commercial options for
that thing. Built-in VPN servers, better firewall, stuff like that.
