Problem setup wireless opt card atheros
ok so i just got a pocket pc cellphone with wifi. so i need to setup a wireless on my pfsense router
i have tried to make an access point bridged with lan without any encryption and with every other options set to default.
my pocket pc is able to connect with my network and i can see my 2 other computer with wired connection.
the problem is i cant access to the internet…do i have to set something else to access the internet on my wireless interface ???
i did a test on a fresh install of pfsense so except for the opt1 card settings everything else is at factory default.
thx for help !!!
p.s. sorry for my english.
ISTR you'll still need to add the firewall rules to the relevant interface.
i did it
i put any on any field so everything is supposed to get access….still doesnt work
The source of the rule has to match the source of the Wireless subnet.
Right now you allow traffic from the LAN subnet on the WLAN subnet.
ok i have change the setting for subnet wireless but i still cant connect to the internet…but im able to load pfsense web configurator from my pocket pc. (but its very slow).
If you want to NAT multiple subnets (additional subnets / other than your LAN subnet) out the WAN, you need to create an Advanced outbound NAT rule that NAT's this other subnet.
do i need to do this to make the internet work ?
Well….. If you dont want your traffic NATed out you dont need it. O_o
On how to add the additional rule: Search the forum. There are already quite a few threads in which is described how to do this.
ok i went to the irc chan and received help from a guy.
i now have changed my configuration
i no longer bridge my wireless to the LAN. i have a new dhcp segment : 10.0.0.1 / 24
and i have a rule on my firewall wireless any to any…
i still can connect with my pda to the wireless but i still dont have access to the internet (10.0.0.24)
anyone got an idea ?
…. as i said: you need an advanced outbound NAT rule that NAT's your additional subnet to WAN.
this is how my config look atm.
does my firewall rule and the outbound NAT rule are ok ?
p.s. sorry for the link domain name :P
the rule on advanced outbound NAT is wrong:
You can delete the second rule and change the first rule so that source is any.
Or you change the second rule so that "Interface" shows WAN and "Source" the subnet of your WLAN.
it now looks like that
but i still cant connect to the internet
i still can connect my ppc to the internet….nobody seem to understand why...plz help im very desperate right now and i dont wnat to hook up a cheap wifi router to my switch to get the internet on my ppc.
thx in advance
