SOLVED: Guest LAN uses WAN2 instead of WAN1 despite outbound rules



  • Hi all,

    I have two internet connectiosn as of Friday and have configured WAN failover with GWGroups.

    However, I'm trying to get our guest wireless to browse out using our lesser WAN rather than our newer and now default WAN2.

    I've made both floating rules and rules within the specific GuestLAN area such that when any traffic being sourced from the GuestLAN network goes to any destination, it is told to use the Gateway for WAN1. But when I go to places like whatismyip.com and ipchicken.com, it gives me my WAN2 ip address.

    I'm on pfSense 2.4.3.

    I'd value your input!



  • Thank you all for your helpful replies... 😏

    A reboot seems to have put it in place. Not something that one would expect to have to do to invoke a rule based on IP Addresses. Certainly didn't have to do this with a Sonicwall...

    Oh well, it's working now.

    Yeah. It probably wasn't the reboot. Maybe pre-existing states or something.
