PfSense 2.3.2 not detecting TP link N900

  • I'm trying to set up a pfSense router to serve as a wireless access point, using this PCIe wireless NIC:

    It uses an Atheros chipset, and from what I can tell should be supported in pfSense 2.3.2, since support was added with FreeBSD 10, but I don't see the interface in the menus or in pciconf:

    Anyone know why I'm not seeing an 'ath0' interface?
