It seems I wasn’t imagining things when I reported that Aruba Instant wasn’t handling IPv6 router/neighbor solicitations and advertisements correctly:
I will say that, other than this little bug which I’ve been able to deal with by running older firmware — my three Aruba IAP-105s were a great acquisition Certainly not cheap, but they provide a quality wireless experience in a house where the architecture & materials choices are a handicap. Quite stylish too — they don’t look too shabby flush-mounted to the ceiling.
The home network currently consists of a NetGear GS724TP switch, which provides Power-Over-Ethernet and VLAN support. Routing is provide by a FreeBSD 9 server — fuzzy.nofocus.org (connected via a Gig-E trunk) — the Arubas provide two SSIDs — a private wireless ironically named FreePublicWifi, and a guest wireless SSID (CostlyPublicWifi) which is bandwidth limited via FreeBSD’s ipfw. The Comcast Business Internet link is trunked into the FreeBSD machine via a separate VLAN.
fuzzy has a rather substantial ZFS pool for data backup and media serving, consisting of 4x 2TB and 4x 3TB drives (in mirrored pairs, of course) connected via an LSI Logic SAS controller.
