802.1p Tagging outgoing traffic on one VLAN

  • Hi all

    I am trying to replace my ISP's supplied router for a Internet / IPTV service I'm subscribed to.  (their router hangs under heavy load)

    It is a 100Mbit  up/down fiber connection, so that is fine, and they use VLANs  to segment the traffic.

    On my pfSense box, I created 2 VLANS,  10 for internet, and 20 for IPTV.
    Internet interface gets assigned an IP via DHCP without issues, and everything is fine.

    IPTV is a problem though, others have found out it requires the IP Option 802.1p to be set to 4 (Video), otherwise there will be no DHCP Offer.

    I tried setting a rule for all traffic on the IPTV interface to be tagged as such, but I have no idea if what I am doing is correct, or if it is even possible under pfSense.

    Any help would be great


  • We need to have our vlan patches sorted, and that includes 802.1p.

    He's back from vacation next week at it's earliest.

  • Ahh… that's good to hear.

    Thanks for the heads up.

  • Hi,

    Has this issue been fixed? or is in the works?
