Cant get wlan to work with pfsence (Newb)



  • Hi!

    First of all great software! Love the trafic shaper.

    I am using WRAP 1.C-2 and pfsence 1.0 BETA3 and its working greate, but now i want to use my box as AP. I bought me a miniPCI Wlan card and mounted into the box with antenna. I cant get my Wlan to work. The card is Gigabyte GN-WIKG. I try to connect to it with my laptop and i can find the wireless network but cant connect to it. I tryed many diffrent settings on the Wlan. Last thing i tryed was to use static IP instead of DHCP and then i could connect but not abel to ping the pfsence box. The Firewall is completely open from Wlan -> WAN.

    Im no computer expert so please use easy terms ;)

    Mabye my Wlan card aren't supported by the system?
    Mabye i need to install drivers for it? (and IF, how do i do that? Got a driver CD but got a hard time fitting it into my WRAP box, lol)

    I hope i explained so you can understand.

  • Not sure concerning the model of your wlan card but if pfSense is seeing it it should be supported. However Beta3 is a bit old and there were some fixes included for wireless settings in beta4. Please upgrade to the latest version and try again.



  • Is there an update for embeded systems BETA4 out yet? Can only find the "pfSense-Full-Update-BETA4.tgz" and this dont work. Would be nice to update trough the WebGUI so i dont need to take the box apart to get the CF-card out.

    Reflash using the embedded version.  There hasnt been an update for embedded in some time and there is no guarantee that there ever will be.



  • Going to reuse this old post. I didn't use my Wlan that much when i started this post so i let it be nonworking, but now i want to get it to work again ;)

    This is the issue:

    When i use the webGUI i do: Interface -> Assign -> (+) -> Then i get a "OPT1" and can chose from sis0, sis1, sis2, ral0 the lates one (ral0) is my wlancard so the machine have found it, but when i got the Wlan tab i cant chose that card there only sis, sis1, sis2…. =/

    Why is this? Is my wlan card not supported?

    edit btw i upgraded to latest version of pfsense now, RC2
