So I find that hard to believe. In cases that require dual or multiple band support, we strongly recommend an external AP. If a card is already on hand, it is worth trying to see if it is compatible. There are tons of Atheros cards and for the most part, dirt cheap. Currently there are no cards supported and working in FreeBSD that will operate in both bands concurrently. Just was reading that the intel driver requires to accept the license agreement And this might be the problem. Find all posts by aht0.

On my travels, researching whether I might need to install an available driver or some such thing, I’ve come across some terms which I presume are acronyms: The ipw 4iwi 4and wpi 4 drivers have license files that must be read and agreed to. A variety of wireless cards are supported in FreeBSD Most Atheros cards support four virtual access points VAPs or stations or a combination to create a wireless repeater.
Verify the iwnfw 4 firmware module is present. If there’s “no point”, then just use OpenBSD, but don’t blame FreeBSD, it’s forums or it’s users for your own errors and apparent inability to read basic documentation. Post as a guest Name.

iqn Email Required, but never shown. Is that correct and what is the letter at the end? If this will not be the the right driver: Steve Wills 1, 6 9. These are different driver names for different devices.
On my travels, researching whether I might need to install an available driver or some such thing, I’ve come across some terms which I presume are acronyms:. Given the limited use of these adapters as clients only, a GUI-based solution to acknowledge these licenses has not yet been created.
As in other similar cases, though the chips supported by urtwn 4 and rsu 4 are capable of I thought perhaps it had something to do with wireless standards, like We have a spreadsheet online with more complete details of hardware support, including more chipsets and example device models that are supported by certain drivers.

Find all posts by aht0. The iwn man page and the iwi man page document these drivers. All times are GMT. There are tons of Atheros cards and for the most part, dirt cheap.

Currently this information is held on a public Google Docs spreadsheet linked from the documentation wiki article on wireless support. Some cards have support for 2. If you never tried working with this specific device its not a shame not to comment on other member questions. Linksys, D-Link, Netgear and other major manufacturers commonly change the chipset used in their wireless cards without changing the model number.
Sorry to disappoint you but it appears that you are not really a FreeBSD user, You can understand much just from the ifconfig command output what was loaded and not loaded.
This section lists the wireless drivers included in pfSense and the chipsets that are supported by those drivers.
