Can't access PFsense or the Net



  • Sorry if this isn't the right place for this post..first timer here!

    here is my current set up  https://imgur.com/W0pw69b

    From the laptop i can ping the laptops IP, Netgears IP and for PFsense it says <ip>: destination host unreachable

    From Pfsense console i can ping 8.8.8.8 && 8.8.4.4 but i cant ping the laptop or the netgear..

    I'm currently out of ideas why this is happening i've also tried different laptops with different OS's and different cat6 cables..still no luck…

    i also moved the switch between vz and pfs still no luck..

    i also tried to connect to pfsense directly with the laptop under the same subnet with and without gateway..still no luck</ip>



  • Has it ever worked?

    if you plug two laptops into the switch with static ip's can you ping one another?

    Is there any non default config on the switch? Vlan's, port security?



  • Looked at the diagram more closely and this is impossible as pfsense is on the same subnet as the laptop.  Bad mask(s) or the Switch is hooked up/configured wrong.

    the device is kinda defective as shown

    Int 1 –-> ibg0
    Int 2 ---> ibg2
    Int 3 ---> ibg3
    Int 4 ---> ibg1

    this is the port config of the device..this is why it didnt work because it wasnt the correct port.
