Single device for multi access points?



  • Is it possible to duplicate my copper setup (5 external static IPs with 1 external failover and 9 internal subnets - two shared) over to one single wifi access point?

    I have a bunch of wireless devices and BSD/PFSENSE isn't picking them up as interfaces wheras my Linksys stuff does. How do I know if I'm doing it wrong… using the wrong hardware... or asking too much of one device (or pfsense)?

    Appreciate any feedback...

    I don't understand what you want to do: have multiple wireless interfaces on a single pfSense box? It might help to include a diagram in an expanded explanation.

    FreeBSD (and hence) pfSense don't support nearly as many wireless devices as Linux. I presume you mean you are plugging some wireless device(s) into a pfSense box and not seeing it reported as an network interface. That could be because the device is not supported by FreeBSD; it could be because you are looking for it to be reported in the wrong place (for example, expecting it to appear automatically in the (assign interfaces) page without clicking the "+" on that page to add new interfaces.

    What devices are you wanting to use (brand, model number and revision please) and what version of pfSense are you using? (2.0 supports somewhat more wireless devices than earlier versions.)
