Gateway Releases SOHO Powerhouse

Gateway Releases SOHO Powerhouse. Gateway's 7000 series Wi-Fi gateways have WDS, PoE, 802.1X (PEAP), WPA, AES, built-in RADIUS–for $299: The 802.11g version is available now, although the details at Gateway's site are scanty (no product details, for instance). The press release is long on acronyms, but it's not clear whether the PEAP and other secured EAP support is available in-unit through the built-in RADIUS authentication server or whether secured EAP requires external authentication. If Gateway has achieved all these features including in-unit secured EAP, then it's an enormous advantage for small business to secure their wireless networks without requiring the purchase and configuration of a RADIUS server or RADIUS-enabled server software (like Windows 2003 Server).
