WIFI card question



  • I have an ASUS PCE-AC88 AC3100 card and I have version 2.4.3 of PFSense. from what I've gathered from scrolling through here is that PFSense is picky about which WiFi cards it can use?

    Does anyone know if this card is compatible and if so how to get PFSense to recognize it?

    I've moved it between both PCE slots and I cant get PFSense to recognize it. Maybe I got in over my head here.

    Thanks in advance for any help, all i need is WiFi and my PF box will be up and running.

    Be it pfsense sees or not - freebsd and wifi just not a good fit.

    if you want to run wifi on your network - get an AP, or use some old soho wifi router you have or pick up for $20 as your wifi. It just not worth the hassle trying to use some wifi card as AP in pfsense.

    If your trying to get it to work as some wifi connection for psfense to leverage as a client your going to need to look on the compatibility list.
