Wifi Setup



  • Hi,

    I'm having my you know what handed to me!

    I can't seem to figure out what's wrong…  Ok I've read every Pfsense wifi setup doc I could find. I watched every youtube video I could find. and nothing is working.

    Here is a basic of my setup.

    The Pfsense box is 10.10.0.1/24

    I setup the WiFi static on 10.10.2.2/24

    WiFi DHCP is setup and working as it assigns IP address. I tried even doing static on my devices and still can't get out or ping local IP addresses

    All my wifi devices connect without a problem. I just can't ping anything even the gateway.  BUT I can ping other WiFi devices connected to the wifi. Other words I can ping laptop to laptop, but neither can ping the pfsense gateway of 10.10.0.1

    Thanks,
    Rick



  • perhaps you need a firewall rule to pass wlan traffic through the firewall from 10.10.2.0/24



  • First thing I notice is that your pfsense firewall is on a different subnet from your access point(s). Unless you have a route set up within your network to send traffic from 10.10.2.0/24 to 10.10.1.0/24 then your access points won't be able to see the pfsense but will see each other.

    Either change the pfsense internal NIC to 10.10.2.1/24, for instance, or change your subnet mask to allow both networks to see each other (eg: 10.10.0.0/16).
