Rt3070 wlan not working with 1.2.3 pfsense ?



  • Hello.

    I have one wlan card on my router and one external usb rt3070 wlan.

    Pfsense 1.2.3 sees the internal card but not the usb external wlan.

    Is there a way to fix the problem so it sees the two wlan ?

    Thank you



  • Me again.

    i don't understand.

    When i plus the usb rt3070 wlan adaptor, it detects it as you can see in the bottom of the screenshot.

    But when i go to the interfaces assignment menu, i don't see it.

    do you know why ?

    thank you for your help.

    The screen shot shows the report of a USB device claimed by the "generic" USB driver, not a specific USB WiFi NIC driver. You can't assign such devices in the pfSense interfaces menu because they are not recognised as network interfaces.

    Looks like it isn't supported by any of the drivers we currently have. Probably the chip is too new.

    In pfSense 2.0 snapshot builds the RT3070 is supported by the run driver.

    The run driver is not present in pfSense 1.2.3 and its probably a non-trivial task to backport the run driver from 2.0 to 1.2.3 because the USB stack is different.
