  • pfSense WiFi supported devices & chipsets
    Please have a near look on this document to come closer to the point which WiFi USB Sticks
    are supported.



  • There are problems with most all the USB wifi adapters. Save your self the headache. Get an access point. MiniPCIe atheros adapters work if you have a slot.

    There are several ways to do so. Buy a RaspBerry PI 2 for ~$30 and install the WLAN USB Stick
    there and then use it as an WiFi Access Point.

    UBNT WLAN APs are also really fine to handle and offers on top ac,
    and the WLAN controller (software) is also able to run on Linux.

    This will be my access point. Which to use?

    UBNT, MikroTik or a Buffalo or Netgear with pre installed DD-WRT.
