Product Description

IPFire offers several options for the integration of wireless clients. First, an access point can be connected via a LAN card. In this scenario, IPFire offers MAC/IP address filtering to allow only authorized clients. The clients are allowed by default to access the Internet, but they are not allowed access the local LAN. The second option is to install a wireless LAN (WLAN) card in the IPFire machine that takes the functionality of the access point over, using the add-on "hostapd". This add-on supports both unencrypted and WPA/WPA2-encrypted connections. Also the use of 5 GHz (802.11a standard) is possible if the wireless card supports it.

Wireless card support in IPFire is excellent. The drivers in the stable kernel are very up-to-date and IPFire therefore supports a significant amount of WLAN cards.
