PFSense 2.0 ALIX 2D13 MiniPCI WIfi 892.11N

  • Does anyone have info about an minipci wifi card that works on the alix 2D13 board and that provides 802.11n protocol ?



  • 802.11n is not supported in FreeBSD 8.1 and hence not supported in pfSense 2.0.

    However there are a number of chipsets which support 802.11n which can be used in pfSense 2.0 in "802.11g compatibility" mode.

    I think you have two options:

    1. If you really want 802.11n features use a 802.11n capable external AP
    2. Use a 802.11g mini-PCI card "for now" and upgrade it to 802.11n card when pfSense supports it and you need the 802.11n features.

    I have read reports of Atheros 802.11n capable chipsets working with pfSense but can't provide any further information.
