Is this supported – RouterBOARD 14 miniPCI to PCI adapter
Does anyone know if the RouterBOARD 14 miniPCI to PCI adapter is platform agnostic or does it only work for the routerBoards?
Can it be used with a Soekris Net4801 with pfSense?
I am thinking about a 3 radio access point. Am I nuts? (maybe :o)
I would really like to create a complete, all-in-one AP and router for a POP.
I would still like to know if the above card is supported (or would likely work), but I think I found that the Soekris net4521 will do what I want.
why not mail the vendor and let us know? it seems nobody has experience with that board and as the routerboard itself is not able to run pfsense/m0n0 it's most likely that nobody has ordered such a board+card unless it was used for something else.
I will do that. Could you tell me what the situation is with the rest of their hardware? Is there any effort to get pfSense working on routerBoard? I read that recently certain Linux distributions are beginning some support of it. I would be willing to get one of the pci/mini-pci adapters to try, but it looks like the net4521 does what I want. I will post back what I find.
The routerboard has a MIPS CPU which isn't supported by freebsd and it also only has 32 MB RAM:
I am using the RouterBoard 14 adapter card with a Soekris vpn1411: 33/66 Mhz Mini-PCI type III form factor on a stock FreeBSD 6.2 install. So I guess it should work together with pfSense as well.

… just in case...
routerboard 200 series should be able to run pfsense (monowall runs on it for sure)
Just to let you know.
I'm using Routerboard 14 on three x86 (PC) systems with pfsense.
Everything is working fine.

I think PCI to miniPCI adapters are fairly generic. I'm running a a minipci wireless card off of a $10 ebay special pci-minipci card with no problems.
