SG-4860 + wifi card
Excuse my noob question but can I get SG-4860 and plug in something like Intel 7265 IEEE 802.11ac Bluetooth 4.0 - Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Combo Adapter Internal M.2 2230.
Can I make such wireless card work in access point mode with pfSense software?
Or am I not knowing obvious stuff and this is generally bad idea?
Thanks a lot!
WiFi ac is not working in pfSense at this time.
Indeed there's no 802.11ac support in FreeBSD and hence pfSense at this time.
Additionally there is no M.2 socket in the SG-4860. There are mPCIe slots you can use though.
Older Atheros based cards will work such as the one we previously stocked:
Generally though you can usually get better coverage by using an external access point.
