FREEBSD IWN DRIVER

Some cards have support for 2. Currently there are no cards supported and working in FreeBSD that will operate in both bands concurrently. This information was derived from the FreeBSD man pages for the drivers in question. This card supports multiple VAPs and stations, up to eight of each. Most Atheros cards support four virtual access points VAPs or stations or a combination to create a wireless repeater. Support offered by the drivers does overlap for some cards. All times are GMT.

While one revision of a particular model may be compatible and work well, another card of the same model may be incompatible.
