  • Is pfSense support this wireless NIC Realtek RTL8185L and how to? i installed pfsense but that said wireless nic is not detected.


  • pfSense is built on FreeBSD which providse the device drivers. The FreeBSD supported hardware list at doesn't list the Realtek 8185L as a supported device. You will probably need to get another device, preferably one thats on the FreeBSD supported device list.

    If you want to use the pfSense box as a wireless access point you will need to choose a device with access mode support (not all supported wireless devices support operating in access mode).
