2nd Gateway problem
I am a newbie for pfSense and I've been struggle to make the dual WAN works.
I have 2 WAN connection. If I setup only one of them, it works fine. But when I enable both lines, the 2nd gateway(OPT1) always shows "offline". This is before I even try to group them into load balance.
Please help. Thanks.
Here are more screen shots after config load balance:
Sorry, fotget to mention the pfSense version:

Even though that the 2nd Gateway shows "offline", I can ping from the OPT1 line anyway. Does this means the dual-wan load balancing works?

can you ping the monitor-ip from your opt1 interface ?
If the monitor-ip blocks icmp (ping, ….) then it will allways show offline
you can specify any public ip as a custom monitor ip, but static routes will be added for that Ip-adress on that interface.
So for example if you set your monitor-ip of OPT1 to 184.108.40.206 then all traffic from lan-->220.127.116.11 will go over opt1
your gateway monitors need this to be online if you wish to loadbalance using the loadbalancer-gateway-group in your firewall rules
