WiFi N mode not selectabel



  • Hi
    I have a pfsense with a wifi n, but it will only run in g mode?
    Here is some output:

    ifconfig -m run0_wlan1

    ``` `Im not sure if it is a Ralink RT2870 or a RT3070 chip but it is made by AzureWave

    How can it get it to run N??

    I also found this post https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=124115.0 (RT3070 problems) i  think mine is also do

    Is it supposed to be loading 2870 firmware on a 3070 card``



  • The run driver does not do 802.11n. Check out the caveats:
