Channels of WLAN cards



  • Hello,

    i'm using an WRAP board with the embedded version of pfsense (at the moment 0.95). Its not possbile for me to set a wlan card to all possible channels (especially in the 5GHz band there are only 4 channels avaliable - ifconfig eth0 channel list). the card supports more channels. who to fix it?
    thx.

    #1. FreeBSD doesn't have eth0.  So perhaps your using a linux box instead.
    #2. You're on a really old version.



  • Hello,

    sorry i mean ath0 (atheros wlan card). whats the newest version for the WRAP box?
    in the download section (extra files) i find the http://www.pfsense.com/old/pfSense-Embedded-0.95.img. is it not the newset embedded image?
    after playing the half day: why takes it so long if the box is up?

  • 0.95.8

    It was in the wrong directory before, look in the updates directory on the mirrors.

    It will go back to the correct directory on the next sync.



  • Hello,

    thx i find the right Version 0.95.8. But there are always this few channel for wlan avaliable (all 802.11g channel but only 4 802.11a 5GHz channels - there should be 10 or so). must i chance a sort of country code?
    why is the startup of pfsense in the embedded version on a WRAP box so slow? i tried it on an fast pc and it was much faster.

  • fast=fast and slow=slow. sounds pretty much reasonable for me ;-)

    There is a solution here:
