How to setup WiFi on pfSense router



  • I have pfSense with WiFi, however the configuration for WiFi isn't showing the WiFi network on any devices?
    I navigated to pfSense > Interfaces > WiFi > Network-specific wireless configuration > WEP > unticked Enable WEP > WPA > ticked Enable WEP > PSK: testtest > WPA Mode: WPA2 > Save > Apply.



  • did you try rebooting?



  • Yes, I have rebooted.
    I also checked pfSense > Status > Wireless > shows nothing in the firewall, as per http://pfsensesetup.com/wireless-configuration-in-pfsense/

    pfSense > Services > DHCP server > WiFi > Range > 192.168.10.1 to 192.168.10.254 seems wrong. I changed to 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 > Save > error: The specified range lies outside of the current subnet. How can I make configure the subnet to fit 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254?
    But the Wi-Fi subnet shows 255.255.255.0 which is what I use for 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254.

    Maybe the Wi-Fi NIC Intel Wireless-7260BN H/T doesn't have a driver?
    Seems to have a driver named (ath0)?
