Wireless routing RC3



  • Hi, here is pic of my problem

    http://img183.imageshack.us/my.php?image=routein4.jpg

    comp is on wire with PFS RC3
    comp 2 and comp 3 are on wire on D-LINK DWL 2100AP that is in client mode conectet to OPT1 and OPT2
    PFS RC3 has
    LAN – IP 192.168.1.1
    WAN
    OPT1 is CANYON WF511 RT-2560 chipset (not 2561 turbo-- that is not working)
    OPT2 is CANYON WF511 RT-2560 chipset

    solution 1.
    bridge OPT1 with LAN
    bridge OPT2 with LAN
    comp can ping AP CLIENTS (DWL-2100) but cant ping computers connected to DWL 2100 ap-client

    computers 2 and 3 connected to DWL 2100 can ping comp but cant ping each other...

    solution 2.
    OPT1 ip 192.168.2.1 (tried with 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2, 192.168.1.3, nothing) subnet is 255.255.0.0
    OPT2 ip 192.168.3.1 (same as OPT1)

    and i have
    disable NAT;  enable advanced outbound nat,  delete the rules
          - create pass any protocol, any source, any destination rules at all involved interfaces at both pfSense. also uncheck block private IP ranges at interfaces>wan.
        - set up static routes form LAN to OPT

    and stil nothing...

    please help



  • first rc3 is not suported upgrade to 1.0 release

    then if you have on opt1 192.168.2.1 255.255.0.0 and on opt2
    192.168.3.1 255.255.0.0
    then routing is broken becourse 192.168.2.0 255.255.0.0 is 192.168.0.1 till 192.168.254.254
    make it 255.255.255.0 on opt1 and opt2 and routing works again



  • first,  this is clean instal to RC3 not upgrade from RC1

    RC3 comp is
    CPU celeron 1700mhz
    256mb ddr
    hdd 10gb
    asus mainboar 6x PCI slots
    LAN onboard
    wan

    2.  i have allready tried with subnet 255.255.255.0 with solution 1 and 2 - NOTHING
    it seems that something is f*cked up in PFS or in ralink drivers
    i will buy atheros based chipset card and see whats happening



  • RC3 is old, joeren is talking about the final releaseversion of pfSense (1.0-RELEASE, not 1.0RC1). You really should upgrade/reinstall first with that version.



  • hm,
    downloaded
    installed

    same problem :(



  • There are some problems with your setup:

    Solution1 won't work as you can't bridge multiple interfaces to each other (atm only 1 interface can be bridged to another one)

    Solution2 seems to have subnetconflicts as you are using a subnetmask of 255.255.0.0.

    Solution3: set it up with non conflicting subnets and it should work. Btw, you don't need static routes between OPT1 and OPT2 as these subnets are directly connected to the pfSense. Only firewallrules are needed.

    …joeren told you about that conflict already (just saw it after I wrote my answer)  ;)

    solution 1. tried with LAN and OPT1 – NOT WORKING

    solution 2. tried with 255.255.255.0 -- NOT WORKING

    solution 3. tried with
    LAN ------192.168.1.1
    OPT 1 ----192.168.2.1

    -- no static routes, all default... (but i tried and with static rutes from 192.168.1.0/24 to 192.168.2.0/24 and from 192.168.2.0/24 to 192.168.1.0/24 -- NOT WORKING, tried with NAT -enable advanced outbound, with default, and with OPT1 and LAN --- NOT WORKING)
    i tried so many combinations that i dont remember any more :(
    oh yes, with ipsec tuneling too

    i tried and this hoba
    solution 3 -- all default- no static routes etc ...

    firweall rules on :
    OPT1 : pass-->OPT1-->(TCP/UDP)or any-->OPT1 subnet-->LAN subnet
    LAN:    pass-->LAN  -->(tcp/udp) or any-->LAN subnet ---> OPT1 subnet

    NOT WORKING !!!
    I think that buying a 3 APs will cost me less nervs and health than this PFS, but, i want to solve this problem :) :) :)

    lets solve this  8)
    thnx guys



  • tried this http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,2530.0.html
    reboot to factory

    Interfaces OPT1
    –------------------
    Enable: [checked]
    Type: 'static'
    Bridge with: 'none'
    IP Address: '172.16.54.1 / 24'
    Standard: '802.11g'
    Mode: 'Access Point'
    802.11g OFDM Protection Mode: 'CTS to Self'
    SSID: 'test'
    Channel: '8'
    Authentication: 'Open Authentication'

    Everything is basically unchecked or left open.

    Firewall –> Rules

    Interface: OPT1
    First Rule: [All] = *
    _______________________________________________-
    reboot
    still not working

    but when i bridge OPT1 and LAN  i have ping but every fiew packets are lost WTF ???



  • its not working when wep is enabled  >:( >:( >:( >:(
