Multiple SSID's, which card?

  • Hi!

    I've been trying all day to understand which WiFi-card that supports a certain feature;
    I want to have (at least) two different SSIDs that I can have different settings for (i.e. WPA-auth, network, etc).
    Is that what's called multiple VAPs?

    Does a D-Link DWA-547 (with a AR5416 chipset) this things I want?


  • I have a DWA-547 that works somewhat in Pfsense 2.0. I have set up multiple SSID:s with no problem, but having some troubles with my Iphone with IOS 5.0.1 which i guess i the problem (loosing connection intermittent).

  • Hi, and thanks for you reply (Eller tack, eftersom jag vet att du hänger på Swec, eh, rätt mycket). I actually baught one, but it wouldn't coop with my ESXi host, since it showed up that it would share the same PCI bus as my graphics card - hence ESXi wouldn't boot correctly so it wouldn't do.

    So what I do need is a networks card that supports multiple SSID on a PCI-express connection. Any ideas?
