    If you have a wireless-AP you can hook that directly into a standard PCI nic
    on the BSD machine. I have a similar setup where I'm at. I'm letting the
    BSD do dhcp/firewall/nat/router/dns for each of my LANs. The AP is doing
    WEP but for added security I have an encrypted VPN for the wireless LAN with
    the BSD box doing IPSec for that. I combined 2 how-to's I found online.
    Here are the URLs if you want to take a look.

    Yes it's very possible. :-) You may want to check out FreeRadius
    ([url]http://www.freeradius.org/[/url]). It is a free radius server which is what
    I think you are looking for. I will state that you need to take some
    time to read up on this a little bit as it can be irritating to set up
    a radius server if you are not familiar with all the settings. I did
    this for my D-link AP for fun then went back to wep for reasons I don't
    remember. Ohh, FreeRadius has a port, so you can start there. :-)
    It's a popular radius server for *nix. A medium-sized datacenter I
    worked at used it for all communications gear and dial-up access.
    Anyways, good luck sir.
