Wireless & Wired



  • Hi!
    Because I couldnt find it I ask.
    Will this software work with 3 LAN adapters?
    I mean, I want one to connect my ADSL modem, and two wired adapters plus one wireless.
    Will it work?
    The adapters configuration can be found after installing the soft via http?

    Thank you!



  • As long as your hardware supports that many connected nic's(Network Interface Cards) and those devices is supported by freebsd then pfsense has no problems with it.

    Are you going to use wireless router/accesspoint or are you going to use wireless-NIC? if you're going to use Wireless-NIC consider concult url provided above before buing any hardware.



  • Thank you for the reply.
    Wireless NIC are less supported than other NICs?
    Tnx

    Yes, it will work with many more than 3 NICs.

    Yes, provided you use supported adapters.  Most (but not all) NICs that have been around for a while are supported. The range of supported WiFi adapters is rather smaller.

    Generally you need to configure one NIC as LAN and then the others can be configured by web GUI. Installation and configuraion documents can be found at http://doc.pfsense.org
