DHCP WLAN bridged to LAN
I have WLAN Bridged to LAN , LAN gets DHCP address, but WLAN clients do not no matter what I have done, they have to use static, when in bridged mode WLAN uses LAN DHCP settings which are fine
It happens whether or not the LAN connection is up or down.
I have been using this setup for over a year, just added wifi card (used to be lan to wifi router), DHCP works when I am not using bridging WLAN to LAN.

See if this helps you:
perfect, why doesn't the allow/pass network subnet work? would this be unnecessary if you just had any for the source field?
thank you for your help.

The initial DHCP request has an address 0.0.0.0 which won't match the LAN subnet.
That i understand, but why doesn't the allow any (,) work why must you specify it, is it part of the same "bug"?

pfSense is a firewall. There can sometimes be good reason to place tight restrictions on traffic passed.
Depending on your environment, "work" might mean more than "pass any traffic", it might mean "block certain types of unexpected traffic".
