Freshly installed pfsense 2.2.5 Vs noob



  • Ok, I'm still fairly new to pfsense. Slowly getting my head around it all.

    I have a fresh install of pfsense (2.2.5) and just went with the default options during the install.
    The only thing I have done different since the install is setup the IP addresses for the WAN and LAN as static.

    Now, I can ping the network fine, but I can not ping anything on the net. What have I stuffed up? lol



  • pretty sure your wan should be dhcp, not static, so it can pull an address from your isp.

    …. What have I stuffed up? lol

    Everybody uses 2.2.6 and you decided to use 2.2.5. Why ?



  • And post your WAN (and LAN) settings, and what ISP and connection method you think you are supposed to use.

    Running static IP as the modem is not running DHCP

    Because that was the version my boss asked me to install  ;D

    Are there major differences between .5 and .6?

    Modem: Technicolor TG797n v3
    Firmware version: 15.1
    ISP: Telstra business (Australia)

    Will get the settings up in a sec
