Other Router AP Wireless Issues



  • Looking for some help.  Currently my AP will not connect to the internet, it connects to the LAN without issues but no internet.  Either on the wireless or wired.  I have had this setup working prior.

    Hardware setup.
    Internet Modem (DMZ) -> pfsense -> Switch -> AP

    pfSense = v2.4.3-RELEASE (amd64)  –updated during the rebuild
    AP = Linksys E3000 v1.1 with DD-WRT v24-sp2

    I recently moved and ended up corrupting my pfsense box, no biggie, I had saved the prior configs so I reinstalled and restored the last config, pfsense is back up and running without issue.  I was using the AP as my router until I could get to fixing pfsense.  So I had saved the last config and set it up as a router again.  I just restored the AP back to AP settings and plugged it all back in.  Switch goes to one of the LAN ports on the AP just to make sure as I have the WAN port set to LAN as well.  I can connect to the wireless on the AP, get the IP Address from pfsense and browse my LAN, but I cannot get to the internet via the AP.  Any thoughts?

    Yes I've seen this.

    I've had all this working prior, not sure what I'm missing.



  • pfSense = 10.0.0.1 – set as a static in interfaces

    AP = 10.0.0.2 -- set in dhcp on pfsense and static on AP

    Subnet = 255.255.255.128 or /25
