Wireless / Recommended Wifi Card
« on: April 21, 2017, 05:29:27 am »
Hi Guys,
I did check the list of supported cards for hostap and i already have 2 pfsense boxes running captive portal on WLAN, but now i am in a bit of a pickle.
I recently configured 1 more Wireless SSID using the same wifi card (Atheros) and although it works, it seems to fail and get stuck if more than 5 clients connect to it. This new ssid has captive portal enabled with AD radius authentication.

Can anyone recomment me a better wifi card that supports more than 5 connections and more than just 1 SSID? Eventually a link to buy it from (UK).

I keep getting these errors in logs:
Apr 20 18:17:49   kernel      ath0: stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss count 0)

I looked up on the forum and found a topic where a guy recommended adding this in System Tunables:
hw.ath.bstuck   Wireless   12

Once added that change, worked fine for some time, and then it started again to show the error in logs.
Apr 20 18:17:49   kernel      ath0: stuck beacon; resetting (bmiss count 12)

If you think the issue is not with the wifi card, please let me know what information i would need to provide to find out why i keep getting these issues:

Hardware used on the pfsense box is:
Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 1037U @ 1.80GHz
2 CPUs: 1 package(s) x 2 core(s)
