    Your pfSense box should be in between the uverse box and your internal network (switch, PCs, consoles etc).
    You should not have two cables connected from your pfSense box to your uverse box.

    You cannot have the same subnet on the two NICs in the pfSense box. Since the uverse box is using 192.168.1.* you will have to change the pfSense LAN interface as that uses the same subnet by default. Set it to for example.
