Sg4860 problem: att isp does not connect even to webconfigurator



  • Hello,

    I have a sg4860 and I have not been able to bring up webconfigurator.
    I get to the sg4860 console via 'screen' command from intel nuc/linux.
    (Does ANY UBUNTU/FEDORA carry minicom/cu/screen WITHOUT apt?)
    My ISP is ATT but their box mostly supplies WIFI. I have a direct line from att
    opt port to  the SG4860's wan. BUT
    the shell shell from sg4860 console says:
    netstat -rn -4
    dest                    gateway
    127.0.0.1            link#10          UH    lo0
    192.168.1.0/24    link #2          U      igb1
    192.168.1.1        link#1            UHS  lo0
    192.168.1.240      link#2            UHS  lo0
    192.168.1.254      0:8:a2❌y:z  UHS  igb1

    I cannot bring up webconfigurator or ping 192.168.1.254.
    Note : wan is reported at console as igb1 and lan is reported as igb0
    Security: an old zyxel based wifi usb dongle seems to cause crashes of pfsense.

    you have 192.168.1.0/24 network on WAN so you can not use 192.168.1.0/24 on lan.

    go command line, change lan network to 192.168.0.0/24 (192.168.0.1 addres on lan interface)
    apply config.
    now you will able reach from lan via https://192.168.0.1
