    Has this box worked previously?
    Is the pfSense WAN interface (the USB modem) receiving an IP address or are you configuring everything manually?
    What do you see for the gateway status on the dashboard? Do you see more than one gateway?


  • I Assigned the WAN interface to the device created in PPPs page and well configured it.

    in the Gateway status I see Pending .

    So you only see one gateway? A common mistake is assigning a gateway on the LAN interface which becomes the system default and breaks routing.

    Have a look in the PPP log. Do you see the modem connecting correctly, the username/password being authenticated, a public IP being handed out?

    I assume that the modem is known to work, that you've tested it under some other OS, that it is in contract/has credit?
