Dual Wan with cable and adsl help please
Hi, i am using rc2a and have 3 network cards in my acer box. Everything installs fine and i have connected it to the lan and have bpalogin working and sharing it around the lan so all good there. How do i go and get the adsl2+ up and running? i have a netcomm nb5+ router but do i connect that directly to pfsense or do i connect it directly in to the lan hub?? or what mode?? never used adsl before so sorry for the basic questions. my goal is to have load balancing and failover.
You additional WAN has to be connected to an additional interface of your pfSense (OPT-WAN). See http://wiki.pfsense.com/wikka.php?wakka=OutgoingLoadBalancing for how to configure it.
thanks, but how do i get the second connection to connect to my isp? do i let the router handle the log in or do i let the pfsense box handle the log in? i think i am a little confused.
thanks for your help
You have to let the router do the login as we don't support pppoe at opt interfaces yet. It will look like a double NAT setup then. Let the ADSL-Router do the login and set the pfSense WAN IP as DMZ host at the router. Then you can use the LAN-IP of the ADSL-Router as gateway for policybasedrouting or loadbalancing.
thanks i will try that i will let you know how i go,
