Ericsson F5521GW, 3G, PPP setup and configuration.
pmellen last edited by
I have a pfSense appliance SG-2440 with the 2.3.3-RELEASE (amd64). I have installed an Ericsson F5521GW 3G modem.
The modem connects to the mobile network, checked with "Status -> Interfaces", shows status as "up" with an IP address.
Using the "Diagnostics -> Ping" feature, I can ping google.com.
However, there is NO connectivity from the LAN network to the public Internet (using the F5521GW).
I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but I don't know what that is? All help and assistance greatly appreciated.
These are the steps I followed. Tell me if further logs or configuration details are required?
First, checked compatibility and on;
Then followed configuration guide;
N.B. To enable PPP interface, assign as WAN, as per YouTube videos
