Pfsense as Wifi router?



  • Hi Guy,

    I trying to get some advice on using my Atom machine which left only USB port left to setup a USB WIfi router/FW ?



  • There are at least a couple of USB WLAN chipsets that are well supported in FreeBSD/pfSense and support AccessPoint mode.

    On pfSense 1.2.3 I have used a TP-Link TL-WN321G which is supported by the FreeBSD rum driver.

    On pfSense 2.0 I have used a Tenda W311U which is supported by the FreeBSD run driver.

  • At best it will work in "G mode" (max of 54Mbps). It is reported that card has an Atheros chipset so it could work.  I have no experience with that card. I've had good results on both pfSense 1.2.3 and 2.0 with the TP-Link TL-WN651G.
