Suggestions for wireless-lan / WiFi Card



  • Hi all,
    I am planning to implement my pfSense 2.0 RC3 to be a WiFi router. I need the following suggestions from you guys:

    A wifi PCI/PCI-E card, 150Mbps at-least; 300Mbps desired;

    Are there any limitations for number of simultaneous wireless/WiFi connections? ie.) the Number of clients connected at any given time.. Is there a Max or what?

    Can i use MAC based IP allocation for them?



  • With those speeds not going to happen. Please use search to find out

    There is no support yet for 802.11n features (including speeds 150Mbps or more) in FreeBSD/pfSense.

    None I know of other than the more active users the less bandwidth each gets.

    @anoopch:

    Can i use MAC based IP allocation for them?

    I have DHCP configured to assign a fixed IP address to most of my WiFi clients based on the client's MAC address.
