Help with DHCP

Hello- I am very new to PFsense and would love some input
I am helping out at a missions hospital and my boss went away for a few months. The guy with the most knowledge gets thrown in when there is a problem and that meant me.
The setup before the server failed,
VSAT- Modem-PFsense on its own machine- Server running as DHCP from there to
Meraki traffic shaper/router and the distributed throughout our hospital via switches.
The server failed about 4 weeks ago and that meant no internet unless we hooked into the VSAT modem.
As a temporary fix while rebuilding the server and waiting for hard drives to be brought out(both raided drives failed) I put in a router to act as DHCP, so the system went
VSAT-Modem- Router - as DHCP starting ip's were 192.168.1.1 then to the switches, this has been up and down but has seemed to work.
I have rebuilt the server and am trying to decide what to do. If the server failed again I don't want to loose internet.
My first thought and what I have been trying to do is to setup PFsense to run DHCP, so I assigned WAN as DHCP to get ip from the modem and then asked the LAN to be setup for 192.168.1.1 and tried that, but it doesn't seem to be working.
I have tried to go and get into the web config but I can't seem to get there.
I must admit that I am totaly new to PFsense and would appreciate any and all help
