DNS won't resolve

  • SO I am pretty new to pfsense but I know a bit of networking. I recently installed pfsense 2.3.3 on a machine to serve as my home router. It's just a basic setup. I have one WAN port which goes back to a dsl modem and then I have one LAN port which is currently connected to my laptop but will eventually be connected to a switch. After a lot of problems I finally got my laptop to get out to the internet but the problem is I can't resolve any DNS. I can ping ip addresses but I can't access websites. Right now I have pfsense dns pointing to my isps dns server and I have tried changing various dns settings but still can't get it to work.

  • ok quick update. I think I have figured out that the problem isn't with the pfsense box but rather with the modem in front of it. I don't know what would be causing the problem in the modem though. The firewall is turned off and I'm pretty sure the NAT is also turned off.
