[SOLVED] request a little guidance



  • Hello,

    I'm currently not at home, i traveled away but before i did i forgot to open the remote admin for the router anyway my cousin passed by my house to spend some time there but he can't get wifi which is normal because i have the setup like this:

    pfSense -> Wifi router (acting as an access point)

    when i did the setup, i dropped the idea of WEP coz it's rediculous anyone can crack it, WAP slows down the connection so i did it without encryption but with MAC address filter from the pfSense not the Wifi router, anyway i forgot where did i add those MAC addresses inside pfSense so he could add his and use it.. could someone please walk me through the required steps to add it, in details please! ( i thought it's in interfaces but apperently i was wrong, and i don't have any access to any pfSense box here so i realy need your help guys.)

    Thank you in advance :)



  • It's at the bottom under DHCP-server.
    Look out that you select the right tab.
    I assume you have multiple DHCP server's running –> multiple tabs



  • Yea i do have 3 interfaces:
    WAN, LAN, and DMZ

    the wifi is connected to LAN which is the only DHCP server currently turned on, could you please tell me the exact steps to get to the DHCP server of the LAN interface? i'd really appreciate it

    Thanks you



  • You did configure it once didnt you???
    anyways.
    services – dhcp server --> "LAN-tab" --> go to the bottom and add the MAC.
