Newbie - How to properly set up wireless access point
« on: April 13, 2018, 09:18:10 pm »
Be warned, I have barely any prior experience with pfSense or networking in general. Running pfSense 2.4.3.

I've just installed and properly configured my pfSense router. The hardware I'm using has a WAN port, a LAN port, and two optional ports. I would like to use an Asus Nighthawk as a wireless access point. I'm assuming I can connect the LAN port on my pfSense router to a Ethernet switch, then from the switch to the Asus Nighthawk. From that point, considering the default OS is installed on the Nighthawk, I should be able to easily set it up as an access point without having to do anything else.

I wanted to get some feedback from anyone who knows what they're doing, as I'm not sure if this is really a proper way to set up a wireless access point. Thank you.
