Wireless is working with notebook but not with smartphone



  • Hi all,

    I hope anyone can hlep me withthis strange behavior.
    I installed pfSense (new version) on an alix 2d13 board

    3-Interfaces - WAN/DMZ/LAN
    WAN - connected to a DrayTek Vigor 130 - VDSL2/ADSL2+ Modem
    DMZ - connected to an access point (TP-Link TL-WA901ND, 300Mbps Wireless N Access Point)
    LAN - connected to a cisco switch

    I can connect (got an IP address) with every device to the wifi but only can access the internet or local server with a notebook.
    For notebooks the wifi is working perfect but not for smartphones or tablets.
    These devices got an IP address but can't access the internet.

    I hope I could explain the problem well. If you need more information, please ask.

    Thanks a lot for your support.



  • I remember having a similar problem when I first setup my wireless, the internet wouldn't work on my kindle and a few other things but it did work on my laptop and iphone. I switched the wireless channel and everything worked.
