Sabrent PCI-802N Ralink Card Configures fine, ssid not being detected



  • The wireless card I'm using is a Sabrent PCI-802N Ralink RT3062F PBG26220E0

    I tested the card in Linux and was able to connect another access point and retrieve webpages; in Linux it used the rt2800pci driver; though I didn't set it up as an AP.

    ifconfig

    I've assigned it to OPT1 and enabled DHCP in the range 192.168.5.1

    But whenever I search for the ssid, I don't find anything.  Any idea what might be causing this?  I'm using pfsense 2.3.1 that is based on FreeBSD 10.3.

    Also is there any way to get this working as Wireless N?

    Thanks,
