Wifi problem!



  • Hi. I have the latest pfsense 2.3.2, it works great but i just install a new wifi pci-e card Atheros AR5B22 but i dont have internet access.I setup a bridge connection between lan and wifi, put the rules on firewall to pass any.I gave it a static ip, because the lan ip is 192.168.1.1, i cannot give the static ip to the wifi 192.168.1.2. It gives me an error:

    IPv4 address 192.168.1.2/24 is being used by or overlaps with: LAN (192.168.1.1/24)

    but i gave it the ip 192.168.0.1 and it works.I can connect with my phone, it gives me an ip but no internet access. And i did several restarts but it does not work.What could be wrong?



  • You don't need to bridge. Just use a different subnet (like 192.168.0.1) and make sure you have allow rules on your wifi interface to pass the traffic. If you are hell bent on bridging, Derelict posted a good howto in another thread. https://www.infotechwerx.com/blog/Creating-a-Simple-pfSense-Bridge



  • i really dont care abou bridging.i just want to make the wifi work.is it ok what it shows in the picture?



  • Netgate

    Everything you are talking about above is IPv4, yet that rule is IPv6-only. That is not going to work.

    no. i just put the image with the first thing that i clicked.i have the same with IPv4.Now without the bridge , the wifi disconnects from the phone when i try to browse.i have the wifi put in access point.
