We have tested cards using those chipsets and they work well.
I think and I believe doesn’t help here If you care please read slowly from the beginning of this thread and try to understand what is the issue win. In particular, some Intel cards can be used in infrastructure mode as clients but cannot run in own point mode due to limitations of the hardware itself.
The right way to understand it is to run tcpdump and see why I get no carrier.

Keith Open Source Software user. Many have success with other cards as well, and Ralink is another popular choice.
Support offered by the drivers does overlap for some cards. Last edited by ramib; 18th February at Other cards may be supported, but do not support all available features. Currently there are no cards supported and working in FreeBSD that will freesbd in both bands concurrently. Last edited by cynwulf; 18th February at This section lists the wireless drivers included in pfSense and the chipsets that are supported by those drivers.
Find all posts by ramib. In cases that require dual or multiple band support, we frreebsd recommend an external AP. Verify the iwnfw 4 firmware module is present.
I thought perhaps it had something to do with wireless standards, like If you never tried working with this specific device its not a shame not to comment on other member questions. The iwn man page and the iwi man page document these drivers. The bwn 4 driver is preferred for the cards it supports while the bwi 4 driver must be used on the older cards not covered by bwn 4. Currently this information is held on a public Google Docs spreadsheet linked from the documentation wiki article on wireless support.
Most pfSense developers work with Atheros hardware, so it tends to be the most recommended hardware. A variety of wireless cards are supported in FreeBSD The 4 refers to the kernel interfaces section of the man page collection, in this case specifying a network driver.
There are tons of Atheros cards and for the most part, dirt cheap. For this reason, we recommend avoiding cards from the major manufacturers. If it doesn’t you might want to trying using ifconfig with the wlan0 interface rather than iwn0 to troubleshoot it The drivers are listed in order of frequency of use with pfSense, based on reports from users.
Drivers in FreeBSD are referred to by their driver name, followed by 4such as ath 4.
Wireless — Recommended Wireless Hardware
As in other similar cases, though the chips supported by urtwn 4 and rsu 4 are capable of Most Atheros cards support four virtual access points VAPs or stations or a combination to create a wireless repeater.
But I think they are all driver names and that iwa is a new driver that feeebsd currently developed. Freebse my travels, researching whether I might need to install an available driver or some such thing, I’ve come across some terms which I presume are acronyms:.
Just was reading that the intel driver requires to accept the license agreement And this might be the problem. For more detailed information on cards supported, and the most up to date information, refer rfeebsd the pfSense wiki.
