So I find that hard to believe. Did you read the the handbook page in the link I posted above? If there’s “no point”, then just use OpenBSD, but don’t blame FreeBSD, it’s forums or it’s users for your own errors and apparent inability to read basic documentation.
Sign up using Facebook. This is referred to as hostap mode. If you never tried working with this specific device its not a shame not to comment on other member questions.
In cases that require dual or multiple band support, we strongly recommend an external AP. Find all posts by cynwulf. Verify the iwnfw 4 firmware module is present. These are different driver names for different devices. For more detailed information on cards supported, and the most up to date idn, refer to the pfSense wiki.

Most Atheros cards support four virtual access points VAPs or stations or a combination to create a wireless repeater. If this will not be the the right driver: Some of the post is missing but this is the right driver. The RT ral 4 chip is the only model listed as capable of My presumption is that iw stands for something like Intel Wireless? 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 by urtwn 4 and rsu 4 are capable of Linksys, D-Link, Netgear and other major manufacturers commonly change the chipset used in kwn wireless cards without changing the model number.
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 a wireless WAN. There are tons of Atheros cards and for the most part, dirt cheap. We have tested cards using those chipsets freebbsd they work well.
To address your problem, it seems to me that you’re attempting to configure the wrong device. The right way to understand it is to run tcpdump and see why I get no carrier. Cards supported by the iwn 4 driver are documented by FreeBSD as supporting In particular, some Intel cards can be used in infrastructure mode as clients but cannot run in access freebwd mode due to limitations of the hardware itself.
