    Have you tried with the "spoofed" MAC Address (write it to the "MAC address" Field at the pfSense WAN)



  • Yes I tried wit Mac spoofed address.



  • How have you set this up? Are you replacing the D-Link router with the PFS completely, or are you trying to run the WAN interface from the firewall through to the internal interface of the router? It might help if you provide a diagram showing your entire setup.



  • Yes I try to Replace D-link router with pfsense and using it for wi fi access point. I try to achieve this.

    Internet –---> swtich ----->pfsense pc -------------->Lan
    My local isp provider took my d-link wi fi router and put ip address there. This is work fine. Now I try to put this ip my pfsense pc. Do they using mac or any setting in d link router that I can not use this ip in pfsense?



  • @shetu:

    Do they using mac or any setting in d link router that I can not use this ip in pfsense?

    That's a question for your ISP.

    Are you testing the connection from the WAN NIC of the firewall? For example, have you tried running a shell from the pfsense firewall directly and tried pinging an outside address? If that works, then the issue you may have might be more to do with your firewall rules than your internet connection.



  • I try to ping google.com from Pfsense shall and pinging failed.
