VIA VNT6656GEV00 802.11b/g Wifi wireless card VT6656



  • I've installed pfsense on a Lexcom Brik with 4xGbps LAN. The Lexcom supports Mini-PCIe USB card.

    I want to install a VIA VT6656 Mini-PCIe USB card. So it is not using the PCIe 1x bus, bus only the USB part of the Mini-PCIe interface.

    Is the Via VNT6656GEV00 (or VT6656GEV00) supported bij pfsense? Here some specs:

    I don't see any via wireless cards in the supported drivers list, so unless that is a rebranded card that is really using something like an atheros chip, I doubt it will work.



  • Are there any wireless cards with a Mini-PCIe interface that uses the USB part of this interface?
