Atheros CM9 108 mbit 802.11G turbo mode
How do you turn on 802.11g turbo mode for RC2 of pfsense? Or is it not possible as I recall it used to be possible.
Download a freebsd 6.1 CD and see if it works with it. If it does we will investigate further but chances are FreeBSD 6.1 does not support this option in the driver / hal for your card as of yet.
Well maybe it was freebsd 5 something that had that ability and I just never noticed until now… although I know the card can support 108 mbit 802.11g turbo mode.
I'll try and find out.
my CM9's don't list 108 mbit turbo g modes either. however 108 mbit turbo a works fine.
my card has no countrylock:

I was investigating the same thing a couple of months ago. I read alot of discissions on mailinglists and got the impression that the guy that's responsible for the drivers Sam? doesn't think that turbo mode is a good thing on 2.4Ghz.
It works just fine in linux, and the HAL is the same for linux and BSD if I'm not misstaken, so I would assume that it's not implemented in the drivers.
