Need to configure 2 LAN for 2 AP
I have an WAN on static IP: 126.96.36.199, 1 LAN on static IP 10.0.0.1/24, DHCP 10.0.0.1 - 10.0.0.180 and 2 AP.
I want to have 2 LANs such that each AP is sending to its LAN. AP1->LAN1 and AP2->LAN2. I need this to be sure if one AP is down, all traffic is sent to another LAN thourgh its AP.
I configured a new LAN in interfaces, gave it IP: 10.0.0.181/24, DHCP 10.0.0.181-10.0.0.254 and made in firewall the same rule as for the first LAN. It is not working, I do not understand why.
Thank you very much!

Learn about subnets first. Each LAN is has to be a different subnet. Also, LAN DHCP is starting from 10.0.0.1, which is your pfSense LAN address - I am surprised that pfSense even lets you do these things, I thought there was a lot more validation in the GUI these days.
Change LAN DHCP range to start from 10.0.0.2
Make the new LAN in a different subnet, like 10.0.1.1/24 with a DHCP range of whatever you like from .2 up.
