Multi WAN Setup Guide



  • Dear all,

    This is what i want to setup,

    ISP 1                                                    ISP 2
            |                                                          |
            |                                                  Linksys Router (PPOE)
            |                                                    192.168.2.1
            |–----------------FAILOver---------------|
      PFSense                                             
    WAN 1 (PPOE)                                          WAN 2 (OPT)
    ip:203.118.28.x --------- Switch------------ip:192.168.2.5
    gw:203.118.34.1                                       gw:192.168.2.1
             |                                                         |
             |                                                         |
           LAN 1                                                   LAN 2                    
    ip:192.168.1.x/24                                        ip:192.168.2.x/24
    gw:192.168.1.1                                           gw:192.168.2.1

    (The reason we serpated Linksys router to ISP 2 because, we want to use ISP 2 for skype dedicated link)

    The problem is I could not able to ping from LAN 1 to LAN 2.

    are there any solutions for this setup?

    Thanks



  • Dear leap,
    You need routing between the 2 lans. If your switch is not a layer 3 one, so do it with pfsense.
    i.e  if the lan ip addrerss of pfsense is 192.168.1.1, so add a new route to 192.168.2.0.



  • Dear Marito

    Thanks for your replied. I already added. but no luck. still not able to access Lan2.

    This is the route table
            Destination        GW
    LAN  192.168.2.0/24  192.168.1.10

    Any idea

    Pardon me but did you add the rule that will enable LAN1 to access LAN2?



  • You're causing routing complications with that kind of a setup. Put LAN2 off of another interface on pfSense, and leave WAN2 connected to the Linksys (but change the subnet if you want to leave LAN2 as is).
