LAN cannot access Internet
ok i have my pfsense box up and running fine for about 1 month but few days ago LAN cannot access internet. By saying that i mean users open a browser, type in a URL and it returns "safari cannot get xxx because cannot reach the server"
I have turn off captive portal.
strange enough, i can ping the website and get replies, no problem.
i can also do nslookup and get replies, no problem neither.
anyone having this issue?
Do you log your fw rules and then see whats getting through and whats being blocked in the fw logs?
nothing strange in the logs..
now i have some update:
changed to another PC running 2 Realtek NICs.. restore with the old config. EVerything back up running just fine !
the old PC has 1 onboard Intel NIC and 1 Realtek NIC. It had some problems like this in the past too. So i think it could be the compatibility issues with the different NICs here.
In the docs you find some points that should be checked in that case:
If the Router is connected to the ISP there's often an adjustment of the interfaces MTU required.
