VDSL Modem access gives me pfsense login page



  • I'm new to pfsense, but I think I like it.

    I have a Q1000 VDSL modem set up in Tranparent Bridge mode,  the LAN side of the modem is the original 192.168.0.1.
    My PFsense interfaces are;

    192.168.1.1 LAN
    192.168.2.1 VOICE
    192.168.3.1 WIRELESS
    192.168.4.1 CAMERAS

    All these interfaces also have a VLAN ID associated with them because I use a single 48 port managed gigabit switch for all 4 VLANS. All of this setup works fine.

    My problem is, when I follow these instructions

    https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Accessing_modem_from_inside_firewall#For_2.0

    I don't get the Q1000 modem web interface, I get the pfsense web interface on ip 192.168.0.1, I have tried several times with different IP setups and get the same result every time.

    I was told by someone to make sure that DHCP is enabled on the Q1000, but I don't think that is correct, it seems to automatically disable in Tranparent Bridge Mode.

    Anyone have any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
