Pfsense box as an access point?
Ok, I know enough to be dangerous, but not enough to do this on my own.
I have a wifi card in my pfsense box as opt1, I renamed it to wifi, and bridged it to my LAN.
What more do I have to do to make a wireless computer pick up a connection to the internet from my pfsense box?
I seem to have found a snag in my grand plan.
I was looking over a few other threads, and saw a pic of the opt interface menu, which showed "wireless configuration"
If I don't see that on my opt ports, that means pfsense doesn't recognize my wifi card as a wireless device, is that correct?

If it is not recognised it shouldnt even show up as an OPTx
Are you sure you did assign the card as a OPT? (Interfaces –> assign)
yep, now I'm feeling silly, forgot about one interface, the on board one, so, yes, the wifi card isn't even recognized.
I guess I should pick up one of these atheros cards I've seen mentioned around here.
