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.

FreeBSD Manual Pages
My presumption is that iw stands for something like Intel Wireless? The iwn man page and the iwi man page document these drivers. All times are GMT.
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. I don’t think complaining about the FreeBSD forum here is going to solve your issue. The drivers are listed in order of frequency of use with pfSense, based on reports from rfeebsd.

While one revision of a particular model may be compatible and work well, another card of the same model may be incompatible. In cases that require dual or multiple band support, we strongly recommend an external AP. A variety of wireless cards are supported in FreeBSD freesbd For this reason, we recommend avoiding cards from the major feebsd. Several Intel adapters have a license restriction with a warning that appears in the boot log.
These may work using the Oh, I think the i is for intel and w is for wireless, after that I think it’s somewhat arbitrary. Post as a guest Name.
Most pfSense developers work with Atheros hardware, so it tends to be the most recommended hardware. Email Required, but never shown.

If you’d read the handbook, this thread would end fast and your wifi would be working in FreeBSD. In particular, some Intel cards freebed be used in infrastructure mode as clients but cannot run in access point mode due to limitations of the hardware itself.

Using two separate cards in one unit is not desirable as their radios may interfere. Some have better support than others. Last edited by ramib; 18th February at Some example would be nice were these terms are used.
Other cards may be supported, but do not support all available features.

This card supports multiple VAPs and stations, up to eight of each. The bwn 4 driver is preferred for the cards it supports while the bwi 4 driver must be used on the older cards not covered by bwn 4. FreeBSD Current on thumb drives. Support offered by the drivers does overlap for some cards. To address your problem, it seems to me that you’re attempting to configure the wrong device.
