Hello, I recently upgraded one of my routers from pfsense 1.2-RC4 to 1.2.1-RC2 and ran in to a nasty issue regarding my wireless access point seemingly vanishing from existence.
It took a few hours, but I figured out a work-around and posted how to resolve the issue. The jist is in the upgrade from FreeBSD 6.x to 7, somehow the Atheros wireless setting for auto selecting a channel changed such that using auto selection would cause the wireless card to use channel 0 – which is non-sense. My “fix” was to manually select a channel. This was enough for my purposes.
For those who have no idea what I’m talking about – perhaps this would be a good place to get a point of reference.
