PFSENSE WITH GA-H87N-WIFI ( Atheros nic )



  • Hi, I recently bought GA-H87N-WIFI to use with pfsense. Now i realized that the Atheros chip on the board ain't compatible. Will this be changed in a future update ? Or do i need to purchase a diffrent nic/mb ?

    I just did this too.

    I found a GA-Z87N-WIFI at Microcenter for about 40% off because it was an open box. Saw the MAC addresses on the board and got really excited because I thought they were both Intel.

    I was extremely disappointed when I discovered one was an AR8161.

    I did load up FreeBSD 11 to see if a driver was included with no luck. I ended up eBaying the Gigabyte board, and I bought a JetWay JNF9J-Q87.
