OPT interface WAP setup
Im newbie to PF. Thought id try this one sense I never could get xbox to work on smoothwall. I did with PF.
So my question is how is one set up the OPT interface , Im lil to use to the red and purple, green terms.

My Lan interface setup as a 192.168.10.2
and im wanting to do the opt/purple interface as static 192.168.5.2. for the Wap

Bridge allows you to link 2 interfaces, using the same IP range across them, but firewall them differently. I doubt that's what you want.
I have the following setup:
FW1 –-------- eth0-----\ (98.1) 98.2 /----192.168.98.x (DHCP) -- VLAN1 - Copper
\ ------(Windows 2003)-----
______opt1 -----/ (99.1) 99.2 ----192.168.99.x (DHCP) -- VLAN2 - (WAP)
Linksys Wireless WAP - has a static address (192.168.99.3)
FW1 - PF-Sense Firewall
Now of course I run a small business in my home and need to seperate church and state so to speak. I also run most of this on a XenServer Virtual Server. So I got 5 NIC's in this one server and it does alot of internal routing and runs like a charm. But in your case I think you can simplify your home network a little.
Of course on top of all of this I have 8 IPSec tunnels and have just got moblie IPSec tunnels running as well. I been running PF-Sense for quite some time. I started with M0N0Wall and moved to PF-Sense for features and support. It have been a incredible product and I can't wait for Release 2.
If you really want to go with two subnets and no routing between subnets here is what I would do:
FW1 ------- eth0----\ (10.1) VLAN1 1-12 /----(DHCP provided by FW1) -- VLAN1 - Copper
\ ------(Nortel 450T)--
----opt1 ----/ (5.1) VLAN2 13-24 ----(DHCP provided by FW1) -- VLAN2 - (WAP - 5.2)
FW1 eth0- 192.168.10.1
FW1 opt1- 192.168.05.1
This is just a suggestion. I got a spare 450T and if you live state side you can have it I set it up and all you have to do is pay for shipping. Just let me know by email (email@example.com)
Hope this helps what your are trying to do.
That helped :)
