Post by swr85 » Thu Mar 18, 2021 4:22 am

Hi,

I'm trying to connect a VM thought a virtual switch with the Pcie Wifi AX200 card

Wifi adaptor is available in the Physical Adapter but not in the Network Interface Card(Physical) selection ; it is not available?

probably a case for qnap support (ticket)...most forum users probably keep wifi far away from their nas units

I get the answer from support, Official Wifi 6 PCIE from QNAP is not supported to create a virtual switch. This is completely crazy

if you need to have a VM exclusively on Wifi, assign it to a physical NIC and use a Wifi bridge on that interface.

Hi dolbyman,

I turned around your answer and was not able to find out the solution.
I can't select the Wifi adaptor or Nic

Hi

It there a workaround on this?
I real don't care if it supported or not, using my Qnap WMs for lab any way.
