Actual Version of PFSENSE and Wifi Bridge


  • Hallo
    I want to Bridge in my Alix Board the Wireless Card with my LAN. In Monowall is the Bdridge OK.
    But in PFsense are many Problems to make it functional.

    Is there any DOC or Howto to make a Bridge with WIFI and LAN ?

    Basically:
    Create the bridge, assign the bridge as OPT and configure the IP stuff on top of it.
    Don't configure the IP on top of the physical interfaces anymore.


  • I will Test it again.
    What make  i do with the Advanced Funktions ? (Brigde Member?)

    If you don't know what these settings do, don't touch them.


  • Ok i have Test some Things, but the Actual Version of PFSense is in Brigde Modus not so stable, the old Version was better.
    The CPU Usage is higher, and after a half Day the Trouhput to the Internet (Cable Modem) slows down.
