    What does an ipconfig /all show from a command prompt ?

    Also from the firewall does google.com resolve via Diagnostics -> DNS Lookup ?

    Are you configuring the W7 PC IP addresses manually ?

    Where's the IPv4 DNS Server.



  • @nogbadthebad yes its manually configured.
    the dns servers are
    127.0.0.1 1193 msec
    192.168.43.2 58 msec
    8.8.8.8 192 msec
    when I used dns lookup


  • Galactic Empire

    I'm talking about the w7 PC not pfsense.



  • @nogbadthebad I didn't add a dns server for the w7. am I supposed to ? and if yes what dns server should I use.


  • Galactic Empire

    How does the PC know were to go to resolve DNS addresses.

    Yes if you manually configure an IP address on a host you also need to configure the IP of the DNS Server.



  • @nogbadthebad I see. Thank you very much I was stuck for a while and tried everything on pfsense. Didn't know the problem was with w7. Thanks again.

    Not a w7 problem. Every OS on the planet asked for the same info
    Without a DNS things go bad.
