Connect wan to wireless router



  • Hi i am new to pf sense and had a question
    So i  set up pf sense and am connecting it to a wireless router on the Wan side  so i configured the Wan as Urtw0 it is a ALFA wireless adapter connected by USB and i also have a G9000 USB Card set as my OPT1 interface  And configured the LAN as My Ethernet jack on the motherboard
    So i assigned
    DHCP to WAN
    Set a static IP to the LAN
    For the OPT1 i left it alone for now trying to get the first USB Adapter to work

    Basically when i go into the Web GUI i can scan for networks but i cant figure out hot to connect to the router i want to use so i need some advise on that issue and can i connect multiple wireless cards to diff networks

    I presume the router is acting as an Access Point (AP) in which case you should configure the WAN interface Mode = Infrastruction and in the SSID box immediately below the Mode box enter the WiFi network name configured in the router.

    Yes, but you might need some cunning (for example, directional aerials) so the different cards aren't "shouting into each other ears" (you probably won't want the very strong signals from nearby transmitters swamping the much weaker signals from more distant transmitters).
