Of these, only certain chips supported by run 4 can support VAPs. Raphael Ahrens 6, 5 28 Sign up using Facebook. Last edited by ramib; 18th February at Last edited by cynwulf; 18th February at

So I find that hard to believe. These are different driver names for different devices.
To address your problem, it seems to me that you’re attempting to configure the wrong device. These may work using the The drivers are listed in order of frequency of use with pfSense, based on reports from users.
FreeBSD Manual Pages
We have tested cards using those chipsets and they work well. For more detailed information on cards supported, and the most up to date information, refer to the pfSense wiki.
Oh, Freebss think the i is for intel and w is for wireless, after that I think it’s somewhat arbitrary. This is referred to as hostap mode.
If it doesn’t you might want to trying using ifconfig with the wlan0 interface rather than iwn0 to troubleshoot it Some cards have support for 2.
Some example would be nice were these terms are used. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.

As in other similar cases, though the chips supported by urtwn 4 and rsu 4 are capable of The cards in this section support acting as an access point to accept connections from other wireless clients.
On my travels, researching whether I might need iwm install an available driver or some such thing, I’ve come across some terms which I presume are acronyms:. The iwa driver you found just might work, but be aware that getting it built isn’t trivial and will take some work.
Is that correct and what is the letter at the end?

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.
