    This is my settings

    where pfsense stacture like :  "ISP <=> MODEM <=> WAN <=> pfsense <=> LAN <=> switch"

    ISP : Static IP :183...32

    WAN : 192..1 to 192...254  (Using DHCP)

    LAN : 192...1 to 192..*.254  (Using Static /Not using DHCP )

    I'm beginner of the pfsense, i googled the how to setup & configuration of  pfsense, but i could not implement the my network settings.

    I have mention above the my pfsense  stacture network settings.

    please reply me …...



  • The upstream modem on WAN is already using 192.168.1.0/24 subnet.
    That is also the default for pfSense LAN. So change pfSense LAN to some other subnet in private IPv4 address space,
    e.g. make the pfSense LAN IP 192.168.2.1/24
    And change the DHCP on LAN to a range in 192.168.2.*

  • If you have a static IP from your ISP, I really think you should not use a 192.168 address on your WAN.  Instead, call your ISP and ask them to change your modem to a pass-through device that does not do any routing or NAT.  It should be a plain, dumb modem.  They usually call it "bridge mode".  That way, your pfSense WAN interface can be assigned the static IP and gateway for your ISP and you can use any 192.168 address you want for your LAN.
