Wireless dying in a day on alix - 2 different wifi cards



  • I have an alix2d13 running pfSense 2.1-RELEASE-4g-i386-nanobsd
    http://pcengines.ch/alix2d13.htm

    The wired works quite well. Now I'm trying to add a wireless card. I have 2 5dB antennas.

    The first card I tried was the TP-Link TL-WN861N v2 with an Atheros AR9223 chipset.
    https://wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_TL-WN861N_v2
    This one would provide a reliable connection for a day and then you couldn't connect to the point anymore. Running a signal watcher (linSSID), the signal was erratic, up and down, up and down. I made sure it wasn't operating on a channel used or adjacent to anything else in my area. After a couple rounds of restarting the router and trying different power settings, I thought it might just be a poor chipset.

    The second card is a MSI MP54G5 (MS-6833B) with a Ralink RT2501 chipset (RT2561+RT2527). Supposedly better supported in FreeBSD.
    https://wikidevi.com/wiki/MSI_MP54G5_(MS-6833B)
    This one also had a reliable connection for a day. The signal was much more consistant. No fluctuations like the previous card. But after a day (actually less this time), you could see the AP, but could not make the connection.

    I only have a handful of wired clients and a handful of wireless clients. The wired works fine and I work okay on wireless using an old ASUS router instead.

    I'm not sure what's going on. The only thing I could come up with was maybe my power supply isn't providing enough power to the wireless card. The current power supply bought with the alix from Netgate is providing +15V/1.2A.

    I'm also not sure what other logs to look at… I am a newbie to pfSense, so whatever help you give is great!

    Geez, why is it rekeying so often… I guess the key rotation default value of 60 is too low. I'll leave the master key regeneration at the 3600 default, but I'm upping the key rotation to every 15 minutes. Does everyone use the every minute value?



  • With 1 device accessing the AP, things were good. With 4 devices,  then they're getting disconnected. The device labeled MAC1 is having the most noticeable disconnections.

  • @ChamPro:

    With 1 device accessing the AP, things were good. With 4 devices,  then they're getting disconnected. The device labeled MAC1 is having the most noticeable disconnections.

    Associated or ad-hoc peers
    ADDR AID CHAN RATE RSSI IDLE TXSEQ RXSEQ CAPS ERP
    MAC1 1 10 1M 11.5 0 34090 40592 EPS AE
    MAC2 2 10 11M 10.5 0 188 3616 EPS AEP

    MAC4 3 10 9M 14.0 0 194 4064 EPS AEP

    Says MAC1 is only 1M is it far from the AP? That is horrible
