No, Smoothwall has no wireless drivers and no tools to
configure them. Apparently some guy modded his
smoothie to create a 'Purple' wireless interface and a
lot of people put it on the wishlist forum but the guy
never submitted it and it never got done.

Here are 2 links on the topic and what other people


It's not something I fancied getting my hands dirty
with though to be honest.

I think the general concensus the last time this came
up was to use a vpn and despite Ron's excellent talk,
I can't remember how to go about this and where on the
network you put the 2 vpn end points I don't know.

Fizz looked at this and maybe Bam Bam, but Ron
probably knows off the top of his head ;)
