The transmit speed is user-selectable or can be adapted automatically by the driver depending on the number of hardware transmission retries. Currently there are no cards supported and working in FreeBSD that will operate in both bands concurrently. Want to link to this manual page? Many have success with other cards as well, and Ralink is another popular choice. A variety of wireless cards are supported in FreeBSD

Clients attempting to use power saving mode may experience significant packet loss disabling power saving on the client will fix this. Linksys, D-Link, Netgear and other major manufacturers commonly change the chipset used in their wireless cards without changing the model number. freebsd

The RT chipset is a low-cost version of the Frrebsd chipset. We have a spreadsheet online with more complete details of hardware support, including more chipsets and example device models that are supported by certain drivers.

While one revision of a particular model may be compatible and work well, another card of the same model may be incompatible.

As in other similar cases, though the chips supported eal urtwn 4 and rsu 4 are freebxd of The RT ral 4 chip is the only model listed as capable of This is referred to as hostap mode. The RT chipset is the first generation of single-chip Multiple station interfaces may be operated together with a hostap interface to construct a wireless repeater device. For more detailed information on cards supported, and the most up to date information, refer to the pfSense wiki.


This should not happen. Several Intel adapters have a license restriction with a warning that appears in the boot log.

Wireless — Recommended Wireless Hardware

Support offered by the drivers does overlap for some cards. Some cards have support for 2. Most pfSense developers work with Atheros hardware, so it tends to be the most recommended hardware. Some have better support than others.

The RT chipset is the first generation of The cards in this section support acting as an access point to accept connections from other wireless clients. This section lists the wireless drivers included in pfSense and the chipsets that are supported by those drivers. Of these, only certain chips supported by run 4 can support VAPs. Any number of wds virtual interfaces may be configured together with a hostap interface.

The cards in this section are not capable of acting as access points, but may be used as clients in station mode, for example as rla wireless WAN. The driver will reset the hardware. Other cards may be supported, but do not support all available features.


This information was derived from the FreeBSD man pages for the drivers in question.

Additional work is required in before those features can be supported. 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. In particular, some Intel cards can be used in infrastructure mode as clients but cannot run in access point mode due to limitations of the hardware itself.
