How to Block Wan2 with loadbalancing to 1 client?



  • Hi guys! I have load balancing and failover on my pfSense box and have a wan rule on the wan2 tab that states any traffic on going from wan2 to my client(10.0.0.103) will be blocked.

    I have two WANs

    WAN1 = 15mbps
    WAN2 =  3mbps

    the reason I want to block WAN2 to my client computer is because its a gaming computer and want it to use WAN1 always. wan2 is very slow.

    I use speedtest on my client(10.0.0.103) and sometimes it uses the WAN2, is there any concrete way of making it use WAN1 always? Thanks:)



  • you could add another network adapter and configure as lan2 and set a rule on it just to use wan as the default gateway.
    Then connect that gaming pc to that lan2 only

    Meaning I need to set up another lan interface which is lan 2?

    lan 1 = 192.168.1.1/24
    lan 2 = 10.0.0.1/23

    Correct? :) But can two lans still see each other like the clients?

    Thank you!



  • Why not just give it a static IP and then create a firewall rule on the LAN that forces all traffic for that IP through the WAN1 gateway? That's how we do it at work.



  • I agree with liontaur.  Give the gaming PC either a static IP or a dhcp reservation and policy route traffic sourced from that IP out WAN1.

    Thank you! I will research more about dhcp reservation and policy route :)
