Belkin Atheros WiFi G Card as WAP - How?



  • Hi,

    I've done quite  a bit of searching, and I haven't found anything that addresses this issue that I'm having.  I have a Belkin F5D7000 rev 5100 Atheros-based WiFi card in my firewall box, which is a Pentium III 500 system, alongside two 10/100 NIC cards.  I have pfSense currently installed with one NIC for the WAN, and the other for LAN, and I'm wanting to have the WiFi card serve as a WAP for my local network.

    However, my pitfall is that pfSense does not currently list the WiFi card as an existing adapter, and I haven't found any information about how to add support for it, or anything else instructing me how to proceed from here.

    Am I missing something?  Should pfSense be detecting it automatically, or is there a package I need to download/install beforehand?  And is there any good documentation on the process of setting up a WiFi card as a WAP for the LAN?

    Thank you for your time.
