Wireless addon cards and PCI port thru VM


Dec 9, 2018
Hi to all,
I 'm trying to use an add-on Wireless network card connected on my proxmox 5.3.11 Hypervisor.
The card was recognize.

I would like to use the card specifically to a VM with new proxmox function as adding new pci resource.

# lspci -nn:
01:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection [8086:1539] (rev 03)
02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation I211 Gigabit Network Connection [8086:1539] (rev 03)
03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8821AE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter [10ec:8821]

on resource management i see the card.


Selected the card, doesn't work on the VM, it seems doesn't works.

Anybody can give the process for doing that ?

Many thanks in advance
can you post the vm config ? (qm config ID)
did you stop and start the vm again after adding the device?

what does lspci show inside the guest ?
Well i'm closing the topic. I saw my system get new updates from my last test. Now all works...Fine !
