comment Failure to obtain IP with ARP over Wi-Fi with personal Wi-Fi router in client mode
Nothing wrong with sniffing network traffic, I guess. It might just not be a layer 2 but a layer 3 issue. To me, the excerpt of your dump (screen shot) looks OK. If 192.168.1.61 is your TV (and only your TV :)) ARP is working. Do you agree? I would then just sniff any traffic coming from/going to 192.168.1.61 and see what you get.

BTW from the documentation I was under the impression what you refer to as "repeater" could be called "bridge" in the manual.

comment Machine boots GENERIC kernel after freebsd-update install
OK. But dummynet is only on the sideline of my question. What really nags me is why the generic kernel is booted at all. I mean, I don't technically have to have it around, do I?

No, I have not tried this. But I will :) And it would still be great to know if this behaviour is by design anyway.

comment Best Practices in Username Standards: Avoiding Problems
I like the "Have a system in place for exceptions, since there will always be some." part. This definitely is very true. Although I don't see how smithj510 makes a great eight character username ;)

comment New network design from a noob. VLANS, IP's, hardware, etc. Any comments please
It's true that it is not the best of all possibilities to have someone who has "never done networking before" (but knows about VLANs and stuff?) do this kind of thing but then it might be the only shot they get... And it's OK to mention it, but then he's here (one of the more sensible places on the internet IMHO) asking questions to people who have experience and thinking hard about what he is about to do. I guess he has not too bad a chance to come up with something quite reliable. Better than if he was not asking at least. Maybe not perfect -- but that's a matter of taste anyway, no?

@Chris S: thank you for your edit! I think I might try the first option. Because of the library dependencies as you mention. Cheers!

If you hate to be, then don't :) My first language being German and not English I do not understand what Nazis got to do with it anyway (i.e. I do not know what the saying "to be nazi" means but I sure know what a Nazi is!). On the other hand, the command I am issuing is called csup not c**v**sup... csup man page. Maybe that is where the confusion comes from.
