Cannot Access Internet when using Static configuration in WAN

  • Hi!

    I would just like to know what else needs to be configured when the WAN interface is set to STATIC? I already checked the following:

    Correct IP Address
    Correct Gateway
    Correct Subnet

    Already entered DNS in System>General Setup


    The network icon on the computer (Windows 7 and Windows 8.1) show NO exclamation point.
    When pinging GOOGLE.COM (through Windows Command Prompt), the result is: "Reply from Destination host unreachable."
    When doing the TRACERT for GOOGLE.COM (through Windows Command Prompt), DNS is correctly being resolved though Destination host is unreachable.

    What else could have I possibly missed out?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Can you ping Google from your WAN interface on your pfsense box?

  • It says:

    PING ( 56 data bytes

    –- ping statistics ---
    3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100.0% packet loss

    I am very sure that the internet is not down because another network is connected to the ISP's router via a switch (where this network is also connected).

  • I would double check your gateway and make sure you have everything configured correctly. Can you ping your gateway? What does your arp table show on your WAN connection.

  • I think I already got where the issue is coming from. I have three Gateways saved in System>Routing>Gateways, where two of which is running. I deleted the first two, and now I can ping and view websites from my computers. I just don't know why would this cause the issue.
