• Hi all,

    Pfblockerng works great whilst a device is connected to my pfsense router (192.168.1.1) or my Netgear R7000 (Tomato Shibby firmware - 192.168.1.2) by wired ethernet port.

    However, I also use the Netgear R7000 to broadcast wifi around the house. For any devices connected wirelessly to the Netgear R7000, the pfblockerng does not work.

    Any ideas as to why? I have tried messing around the with the settings in 192.168.1.2 (my Netgear router) to no avail. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    pfBlockerNG does not give a damn about wired or wireless. Your AP is configured incorrectly, should be just a bridge between wired and wireless, doing no routing. Anything connected there (wired or wireless) should be getting IPs from the corresponding interface range where the AP is connected to pfSense and have pfSense as its default GW.


  • which is why you can see my confusion.
    My macbook is connected with IP 192.168.1.15. Default gateway is 192.168.1.1.
    I don't see why the wireless signal is not picking up the adblocking, but the wired is. Very strange.

    Wireless signal's understanding of pbBNG is equivalent to pfBNG's understanding of 802.11 - none.


  • Hmm, it seems as though its not my wireless - it is just my macbook. Other devices have the ad blocking working perfectly.


  • Check the DNS configuration on your Macbook, it has to use pfSense DNS resolver in order to have DNSBL blocking effective.

    Done. Fixed. Thank you.
