And this is based on which assumption with what criteria for "working better"?
On my FreeBSD AP I can:
- view my logs in realtime
- shape traffic
- deny/grant access at will without requiring rule reloads (pf tables ftw)
- send custom DHCP info, like:
option wpad code 252 = text;
option wpad "";
- configure over ssh
- add memory
- control internal and external DNS
