What is the specific 802.11a/b/g/n 2T2R wireless card shipped with the SG-4860?
I've ordered my SG-4860 with the optional 128GB Micron M600 mSATA SSD and 802.11a/b/g/n 2T2R wireless card and am looking forward to delivery next week.
After I placed the order I realized that I don't actually know what the exact capabilities of the wireless card shipped with the unit are. Specifically I would like to verify that it supports multiple BSSID when hosted through the SG-4860.
The only reference I could find was on the website of the distributor Netgate.com for the ADI Engineering development board http://store.netgate.com/ADI/RCC-VE-4860.aspx which most likely uses cards they ship from http://store.netgate.com/miniPCI-Cards-C26.aspx. The only miniPCIe 802.11a/b/g/n 2T2R card on that list is http://store.netgate.com/WLE200NX-80211nabg-miniPCIe-Card-P1763.aspx. That card has a Atheros AR9280 chipset which according to the spreadsheet attached to https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Supported_Wireless_Cards does support multiple BSSID. Of course that doesn't mean that that is the exact card currently shipping with the current production Pfsense SG-4860.

If it's the same as the SG-2440, which I assume that it is, then it is the WLE200NX.
I didn't see any mention of multiple BSSIDs in the spreadsheet.
It's the WLE200NX. It does have multiple BSSID support.
Just to confirm I've received my SG-4860 and the FCC ID tag on the back says TK4-10-WLE200NX and the card registers as an Atheros interface.
I’ve just unpacked and fired up my new SG-2440 which came with the TK4-10-WLE200NX.
Unfortunately the operating system does not indicate the card is present (although I can see that it is). There are no wifi interfaces or options within the firewall that I can see.
Am I missing something?? :o
In the SG-2440 unit are three miniPCIe slots, one is for the usage of a modem coupled to the SIM slot,
one is for mSATA coupled to the SATA port and one is for cards such your WiFi card, so perhaps you
has only to use another miniPCIe slot.
It turns out the interface was just not assigned to a port…I'm a newbie to pfsense.
