Monitoring Apples 802.11n Airport Extreme

Thanks to the info posted by Erik Romijn at http://www.uname.nl/closer-look-airport-extreme/, I now have the Airport Extreme being tracked by mrtg for graphs. For those wishing to do the same, the important interfaces are: * 1 - gec0 - ethernet traffic on the home side * 2 - ath0 - wireless traffic * 5 - vlan1 - ethernet traffic on the provider side There are other interfaces as well; wlan0 is the madwifi driver (and best I can tell, irrelevent), and bridge0, which sees all traffic (again, irrelevent).
