Make an wifi network (opt adapter)



  • I am having the hardest time getting an OPT network getting to the internet.
    I am running version 1.2.3-RC1 built on Fri Apr 17 20:57:54 EDT 2009, I am posting here because this is working with 1.2.3 as far as I know.

    my pfsense has 4 nics: LAN (192.168.1.1), WAN (DHCP), WAN2 (DHCP), and OPT2 (10.0.0.1). I have internet access on LAN with load balancing.
    LAN can ping OPT2 | OPT2 can ping LAN. My OPT2 Clients can even resolve DNS Names.

    OPT2 Client example IP address settings are: 10.0.0.x with sub net mask 255.255.255.0, default gateway 10.0.0.1, and DNS server 10.0.0.1

    below are example of my firewall settings for a visual understanding.

    Sorry its such a noob question but I can't seem to get any internet connectivity on the OPT2, I can only ping hosts on the LAN at most. To add to it, if I enable Squid transparently on the OPT2 address then I can access internet sites.

  • Did you set the Advanced outbound NAT settings to manual?



  • Need to allow DHCP for your Wireless Interface
