Modem-->PFSense--> Wifi Router Help



  • This is my first time working with PF Sense and unfortunately I'm having to do this remotely. I currently can VPN into the PF Sense, but I can not connect to the LAN behind the Wifi Router. I've attached a very crude network diagram in hopes that it explains it easier. If I can't fix this remotely I plan on taking the 3 hour drive to bypass the WAN port on the Wifi Router.

    What routes/rules do I need to implement to be able to connect to the 192.168.20.0/24 network? I can currently communicate with the 192.168.150.0/24 network without any issues. If I ssh into the PFSense, I can't even ping anything on the 20.0 network. I tried adding a static route(currently disabled), but it didn't help.

    Why would you not just use that as an AP..I am not aware of the native firmware being able to turn of natting and just route.. If you did that then your 192.168.150 would have to be a transit network or your going to run into asymmetrical routing issues.

    Your better option here would be to just have it be an AP, and then hang that 192.168.20 right off pfsense.

    In your current setup you would just setup port forwarding on that soho wifi router and then hit the 192.168.150.11 IP to get forwarded to what you want to use behind it.
