Aim:
I have a working ClearOS7 as gateway with 2 WAN, Need to add one more WAN interface with Wireless USB adapter. Please help me to accomplish this!!
My Observations:
After adding D-Link Wireless USB Adapter, web config shows the interface details , but no option to configure. Here I attached the diagram and few command outputs for reference.

Current Topology and the one need to implement is in yellow box

ClearOS does not support configuration of a WiFi WAN through the Webconfig. I believe you need to install wpa_supplicant and configure it manually.

BTW All your IC's would do better using the r8168 driver. Can I suggest you download and install both the kmod-r8168 and kmod-r8169 drivers from here?

    AH. I didn't think of that!

    Can I suggest, then, that you do a
    chkconfig wpa_supplicant on
    so it starts automatically on boot up?

    Hi Nick Howitt , driver was already loaded, but the problem was not assigning IP Address for Wireless interface, That solved using below method !!

    after connecting with
    #service wpa_supplicant start
    executed
    dhclient wlp0s20u1
    , this solved the issue and interface got ip address.

    Thank you once again Mr. Nick Howitt for your valid assistance.

    I'm wondering if the USB driver has loaded at all. Can you look at your boot log or dmesg log if you hot-plugged the USB NIC to identify it? Or just run the command "dmesg". You can also use the lsusb command but you'll have to google its use. I suspect you're manually configuring ifcfg-wlp0s20u1 and network.conf because there is no network driver.

    BTW I have no idea how to configure wpa_supplicant. It is just something I've bumped into over time.

    Need further help to go further, While checking wpa_supplicant log , it shows ' Association request to the driver failed' , detailed steps given here , may be useful for someone referring in future ..

    Started implementing 'wpa_supplicant' As a first step installed using below command


    yum install wpa_supplicant


    Added wlp0s20u1 to EXTIF


    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]# cat /etc/clearos/network.conf
    # Network mode
    MODE="gateway"

    # Network interface roles
    EXTIF="enp2s0 enp3s0 wlp0s20u1"
    LANIF="enp4s0"
    DMZIF=""
    HOTIF=""

    # Domain and Internet Hostname
    DEFAULT_DOMAIN="qf2.com"
    INTERNET_HOSTNAME="gateway.qf2.com"

    # Extra LANS
    EXTRALANS=""

    # ISP Maximum Speeds
    ENP2S0_MAX_DOWNSTREAM=10430
    ENP2S0_MAX_UPSTREAM=13810
    ENP3S0_MAX_DOWNSTREAM=7780
    ENP3S0_MAX_UPSTREAM=12330
    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]#


    Created network Script File.


    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlp0s20u1
    DEVICE=wlp0s20u1
    TYPE="Wireless"
    ONBOOT="yes"
    USERCTL="no"
    BOOTPROTO="static"
    IPADDR="192.168.1.2"
    NETMASK="255.255.255.0"
    GATEWAY="192.168.1.1"
    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]#



    Modified file '/etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant' modified only one line 'INTERFACES="-iwlp0s20u1"'


    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]# cat /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant
    # Use the flag "-i" before each of your interfaces, like so:
    # INTERFACES="-ieth1 -iwlan0"
    INTERFACES="-iwlp0s20u1"

    # Use the flag "-D" before each driver, like so:
    # DRIVERS="-Dwext"
    DRIVERS=""

    # Other arguments
    # -u Enable the D-Bus interface (required for use with NetworkManager)
    # -f Log to /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log
    # -P Write pid file to /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid
    # required to return proper codes by init scripts (e.g. double "start" action)
    # -B to daemonize that has to be used together with -P is already in wpa_supplicant.init.d
    OTHER_ARGS="-P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid"

    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]#


    Added WiFi Network Details in file and started wpa_supplicant


    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]# cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    network={
    ssid="HUAWEI"
    scan_ssid=1
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    psk="5555831"
    }
    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]# # service wpa_supplicant start



    status of service is shown as below


    [root@gateway wpa_supplicant]# service wpa_supplicant status
    Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status wpa_supplicant.service

    Hi Friend,

    Thank you for your response!!

    1) I will try with 'wpa_supplicant' & update the results here.
    2) Regarding updating drivers , I am interested, will do that too in near future.
