Supported usb wifi
i just checking which usb wifi device pfsense support.
On supported wireless cards i don` t see any new chip:
so, is there updated version? if not, can pfsense support:
USB TP-Link TL-WN821N ?
The most up to date list is linked to from that page:
There is currently no support for 802.11N in pfSense. Some 'N' cards will work but only in 'G' mode. A recent patch to the 2.1 snapshots enabled a backport of newer Atheros drivers but will still not run in 'N' mode.
The TP-Link TL-WN821N comes in at least 3 versions that each use a different chipset. You would have to determine exactly which one your is.
thank you for answer.
I need to make AP from that usb wifi device.
Can you recommended me which will work with atheros chip?
I use a mini-pci card not USB so can't recommend anything personally. :-
Wallabybob has used and recommended some USB wifi devices as access points:
thank you Steve, this help me a lot.
