Wireless Features

The FWAG's wireless settings are separated into two pages - one for the 11a radio (Figure 8), the other for the 11b/g radio (Figure 9).

The settings are pretty much what you expect, but also include the ability to control the transmit power and disable SSID broadcast on both radios. You can't, however, turn off the radios, a feature I think should be mandatory on all wireless routers.

Also note that there are no mode settings on the b/g radio - including no support for Atheros' "Super-G / AG" throughput enhancement mechanism, and no way to disable 802.11g's 11b protection mechanism.
