PfSense not seeing my Access Point?
Guest last edited by
I am pretty new to pfSense and this is my first time trying to set up wireless
I have a router that I have already changed to AP mode, and I would like to add it as an OPT1 interface on pfSense.. but I just don't see anywhere where I can do that in the web gui… I just don't see where I can add an OPT1 interface
The APs WAN port is connected to the same switch that my pfSense is on too.
Does your pfsense have another physical interface?

You Must have 2 physical interfaces for pfsense to work.
What are you going to add as opt1? If you don't have more than 1 interface?
While sure you can run multiple vlans on 1 physical interface - trying to run wan, lan and wlan all over 1 interface not really optimal solution.
Creating a opt would require something to assign it too - what are you going to assign it too? If you don't have more than 1 physical interface - you can assign to same interface I guess.. But that is going to be cluster!! if you ask me.
In a normal setup pfsense should have 2 interfaces at min. One for the wan and one for the lan - you could then run vlans on those physical interfaces. But your talking more complicated setup. If you want pfsense to be the firewall/router between internet/wan - lan and a wlan I would suggest you have 3 physical interfaces.
