pfSense is a very good router, firewall, but its wireless support is 
fairly limited.    I use pfsense as my home firewall/router, but use 
Ubiquiti UniFi AP's for my wireless..   this has the added advantage of 
letting me position the WAP's (wireless access points) seperately for 
the best radio distribution (ceiling mount), while the router is on a 
table in a corner along with my cable modem and file server box where 
radio propagation wouldn't be very good.
