In particular, some Intel cards can be used in infrastructure mode as clients but cannot run in access point mode due to limitations of the hardware itself. It sup- ports a single transmit path and two receiver paths 1T2R. Currently this information is held on a public Google Docs spreadsheet linked from the documentation wiki article on wireless support. While one revision of a particular model may be compatible and work well, another card of the same model may be incompatible. Other cards may be supported, but do not support all available features.

The RTE chipset is a single-chip This section lists the wireless drivers included in pfSense and the chipsets that are supported feebsd those drivers. Most Atheros cards support four virtual access points VAPs or stations or a combination to create a wireless repeater.

The ipw 4iwi 4and wpi 4 drivers have license files that must be read and agreed to. Only one hostap or mesh virtual interface may be configured at a time. The drivers are listed in order of frequency of use with pfSense, based on reports from users.

In cases that require dual or multiple band support, we strongly recommend an external AP. 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. For this reason, we recommend avoiding cards from the major manufacturers. While one revision of a particular model may be compatible and work well, another card of the same model may be incompatible.

Many have success with other cards as well, and Ralink is another popular choice. Skip site navigation 1 Skip section navigation 2 Header And Logo.

Host AP mode does not support power saving. The 4 refers to the kernel interfaces section of the man page collection, in this case specifying a network driver.

It sup- ports a single transmit path and two receiver paths 1T2R. Some have better support than others. This card supports multiple VAPs and stations, up to eight of each. We have tested cards using those chipsets and they work well.

Multiple station interfaces may be operated together with a hostap interface to construct a wireless repeater device. This is referred to as hostap mode.

The RT ral 4 chip is the only model listed as capable of The cards in this section are not capable of acting as access points, but may be used as clients in station mode, for example as a wireless WAN. The RT chipset is the first generation of single-chip The RT chipset is the second generation of This information was derived from the FreeBSD man pages for the drivers in question. Support offered by the drivers does overlap for some cards.

Any number of wds virtual interfaces may be configured together with a hostap interface. The ral driver does not support any of the Of these, only certain chips supported by run 4 can support VAPs.

Other cards may be supported, but do not support all available features. Some cards have freesd for 2. Want to link to this manual page?

As in other similar cases, though the chips supported by urtwn 4 and rsu 4 are capable of Check the board’s PCI version before purchasing the card as it is likely these adapters will not work in systems based on treebsd revi- sions of the PCI specification. Additional work is required in before those features can be supported. Several Intel adapters have a license restriction with a warning that appears in the boot log.
