Need some help setting up an Intel Wifi NIC



  • Hi all.

    I have pfsense installed on an H77N-Wifi. I downloaded the Windows driver which had a licence document identifying the adapter as 5100AGN. It's listed as supported by FreeBSD.

    I added the following lines to loader.conf.local:

    legal.intel_wpi.license_ack=1
    legal.intel_ipw.license_ack=1
    legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1
    if_iwn_load="YES"
    iwn1000fw_load="YES"
    iwn2000fw_load="YES"
    iwn2030fw_load="YES"
    iwn4965fw_load="YES"
    iwn5000fw_load="YES"
    iwn5150fw_load="YES"
    iwn6000fw_load="YES"
    iwn6000g2afw_load="YES"
    iwn6000g2bfw_load="YES"
    iwn6050fw_load="YES"

    Now, when pfsense boots I get the following in the log:

    iwn0: could not attach device, error 45
    iwn0: adapter type 12 not supported
    iwn0: <intel 2230="" centrino="" wireless-n="">mem 0xf7c00000-0xf7c01fff irq 18 at device 0.0 on pci4</intel>

    So it looks like this is actually an Intel Centrino 2230. Is it going to be possible to get this working?

    Don't think it will work.
