Lan and Wan issue
Lectrician last edited by
I have a PC with an on board ethernet port. I added a second ethernet card. I configured the onboard port as the WAN.
The onboard port worked with XP, but will not work with pfsense (orange light on router rather than green, and no WAN access.)
I had another card, so added this as a third and reconfigured it to act as the WAN, using the onboard port for nothing. It now works.
I did want to use the onboard port rather than an addional card. Is it worth worrying about? I was considering using the onboard as a WAN and the two addional ports as two LANS (one for one building and one for another).
Cheers for any pointers :-)

Chipset of the NIC?
pfSense 1.2.3 supports everything FreeBSD 7.2 supports.
Is this card on the "supported hardware list"?
If you look at the output of dmesg:
There should be entries for the nonworking card.
If you're feeling lucky you could try the 2.0 beta and it might support that chipset better.
