What were/are you using it for exactly?
HotspotVPN2 also has a Linux version...
tor is not lightning fast, but my experience has been that it performs (about) as well as a comparable commercial service I used to pay for.
I have also heard that Tor / Privoxy are very slow.
I haven't set up a GNU/Linux box with WPA2 PSK, but from reading other posts it seems that plenty of folks have.
my home connection has WAP2 Personal security with a passprase
What does that mean? What aspects of your connection do you want to monitor?
Along with this is the need for a scanning program to monitor my online connection.
