Wireless is not associated, intel 5100AGN on x86_64

Hi.
First I apologize for my bad English.
I'm trying to get an intel 5100 AGN running on x86_64.
I know I should do something else but I don't know what it is.

AP on intel (if that's what you're going for here) is pretty much a dead end.

What brand of WiFi card should I put instead?
Can you recommend me any?
Thank you and greetings

Mediatek or Qualcomm, but you'd be doing yourself a big favor,
if you simply scratch your current plan, and get yourself an used
AP or router (configured as AP) for the wireless.

Cheaper, faster, reliable, better range, might come with a built in gigabit switch too.

My router came with pfsense pre-installed and I was trying to configure vlans with an ap archer with openwrt without success. Now I have also put openwrt on the router and everything has gone wonderfully.
I'm a little tired of buying hardware with software installed with limitations. It's really fantastic to have the freedom to configure your AP as a switch, as a router or however you want.
My idea is to have all the APs with openwrt. If possible with x86_hardware or another type that allows successive openwrt updates. These APs should not be very powerful. Just enough for 2G iot devices I think.
The important equipment in my house is connected by cable.
Although I think this post should not be here. I'm sorry
