PFS with no DHCP problems
I have been holding off with this post trying to get it working myself with no joy.
Here is my configuration (3) WAN's –----> PFS 1.2.3--------->LAN ------------> Wireless Router (dd-wrt)
(Loadbalance) (DHCP) (also DHCP)
When I try to turn dhcp server off in PFS and let the router handle dhcp, I lose all connections to my pfsense box. Can someone please point me in the direction to allow my dd-wrt router handle all dhcp traffic so pfsense only has one LAN ip to deal with?

What is the goal of such a setup?
Is the DD-WRT router NATing or just plain routing (or even bridging?) ?
Do you have different subnets behind/before the DD-WRT?
My goal is to have the DD-WRT handle all the routing for the LAN computers. Basically my pfsense box handles all WAN connections (multiple subnets) with one LAN (out ) to the dd-wrt router. I want to make the LAN on my pfsense box static so it makes life easier with port forwarding etc… i want the dd-wrt to handle all dhcp request.
Is this possible since I have multiple WAN subnets? I am hoping this configuration improves the performance of opening webpages etc. I have port 80 and all other basic port funtions that have problems with multiple ip addresses port forwarded to my 1 wired WAN connection and the rest of traffic load balanced. However, webpages have slowed down opening to almost dsl speeds.
why not just set up pfsense to do static dhcp, get another interface for the pfsense box and use the dd-wrt router simply as an access point
(or set an ip for it on your current lan and use the dd-wrt bridge function to accomplish this)
the only difference is that the second way will have your wireless on the same subnet
