How to use external gateway as Pfsense WAN?



  • I have "Tomato WRT54G" router that gets its internet wirelessly by connecting to another router.
    Everything is on the same subnet, so i can do the following:

    Desktop > Tomato WRT54G(desktop's gateway) > Wireless AP with Internet
    Works beautifully.

    but how can I channel this internet through PF by using Tomato is PFs WAN?



  • if Tomate WLAN-AP is doing bridging - and I think thats the fact - than you enter the IP of the router to which you AP is connected as the gateway of pfsense.



  • tomato 192.168.1.2

    internet router 192.168.2.1
    router assigns 192.168.2.100 to tomato wireless client

    pfsense LAN 192.168.1.1

    –-----
    on the desktop i do:
    gateway 192.168.1.7
    dns "opendns"
    and voila

    same thing doesn work on pfsense:
    i tried
    WAN IP: 192.168.1.70
    gateway: 192.168.1.7
    no go
