Pci express wifi adapter
Hello everyone I wanted to know what cards pci express wifi properly support
pfsense, I found some problems with Atheros chipset boards
Considering that Atheros are the best supported chipsets on FreeBSD, your experience pretty much sums up the state of WiFi usability on FreeBSD. Get a proper AP with RJ45 and bridge it. (Should it be some SOHO stuff, DD-WRT/OpenWRT support would be a plus there.)
I would get a proper wifi AP and not some card to put into PFSense
Well if you want a working Atheros PCIe adapter this works nicely at 2.4 and 5ghz.
What adapters have you tried? Tplink Atheros cards seem to have issues. Dlink too.
The Atheros reference design is you best bet as Adriann worked for Atheros and knows the design.
Get the card shown under the link from @Phishfry that is unbelievable cheap to get and supported.
If you don´t want to get it, have a look under the links shown in the post from @doktornotor and
search for a miniPCIe WiFi card that is matching your criteria and then hug it up on an adapter
likes shown under this two links:
