Mobile Wan 3G/LTE pfsense doc wrong.



  • I am able to set up the PPP interface and get an IP.

    Primary wan is igb1 DHCP and works.

    I add interface OPT1 and attached to PPP

    I go to routing and add OPT1 as a route.  No other changes.

    Created gateway group and added WAN and OPT1 with WAN Tier 1 and OPT Tier 2 (Member Down)

    When I unplug WAN cable it goes offline and OPT Gateway still up but I am unable to ping or pass any traffic.



  • Not sure what this document refers to but it is innacurate.

    You must configure 3G/LTE setting on interface if using as a wan connection or at least multi wan.  Directions say not to make any changes to the interface but you have to in order to make it work.
