    Default Supported Mini PCI-e Wi-Fi cards?

    Hi

    I've found references to Mini PCI-e Wi-Fi cards in this forum that are supported by Untangle but when I went looking to purchase them from various sources they were EOL and not available.

    I would appreciate it if someone could advise me on a compatible card that is currently available for purchase.

    Thank you

    My direct answer to your question is that I don't have any information. sorry.

    My opinion: Don't do it!

    Avoid it, unless they are cards designed to work in AP's you will never match the performance of a dedicated AP.

    I understand it doesn't have the performance of a dedicated AP but this is to reduce the number of devices present.

    We only support the wifi cards that come with our appliances. The odd are not good to get a working wifi interface using a random wifi card.

    I understand if you would rather not answer but would you be able to tell me what mini pci-e cards come with your appliances?

    I cannot speak for Untangle, but I can say the cards used by the appliance I have available are not available on the general market. So providing part numbers here wouldn't be helpful.

    Once again, wireless cards are not wireless access points... they simply are not the same thing.

    From testing, most WiFi modules available for purchase are designed for desktop use as a client. Firewalls use WiFi as access points which the desktop modules do poorly.
