Bridging Wired and Wireless networks



  • I'm running pfSense 2 on a box with four NICs.  I have them assigned as WAN, LAN, DMZ, and WLAN(my wireless).

    Due to the way some protocols are set up(itunes, etc), I need to have the LAN and WLAN bridged together on the same subnet.  However, I don't want the WLAN to have full access to the LAN.  It should have full access to the WAN, but only as allowed to the LAN.

    I've found multiple topics on accomplishing this setup, but none of them seem to work.  I had it briefly working by just adding a Bridge to the Firewall Rules tab, but that doesn't seem to work anymore.

    How can I get my wireless up and running without putting it on a different subnet?

    Thanks.



  • Okay, so I disabled squid, squidguard, and havp.  Now I can connect to my wireless routers access page.  However, I can't connect to any other machine on that network, and none of the machines can get out.  However, the machine I have wired into the router is getting an IP.

    I'm very confused ATM.  I know something is wrong in my configuration, but I'm not even sure where to start anymore.



  • Anyone?  What do I need to do in order to bridge the two networks?

    No of the tutorials I can find work.
