I am a noob to pfsense so please excuse my ignorance. I am trying to set up a pfsense box mainly for testing purposes right now. I have installed pf sense to the hard drive of a machine with a network card and a wireless network card. I am trying to use the wireless as my WAN and the network card as my LAN. What I am trying to accomplish is that the pfsense box pick up my wireless connection from my router and distribute it out through the network card. So I set up the WAN as 192.168.1.2/24 because my router is 192.168.1.1 and put the gateway as 192.168.1.1. Then i put in the ssid and the security. When i hook a cable up to another computer (straight through cable), it picks up an ip address. I can then go to the web interface and go to 192.168.1.1 because that is the ip address of the LAN for this network. I can then change the settings or whatever. I can also ping the router. However I cannot get online. Please someone let me know what I am doing wrong or give me a good configuration instructions for what I am trying to accomplish.
Thanks in advance.
If your WAN is 192.168.1.0/24 you'll need to change your LAN to something other than that. If the same subnet is on both sides, it won't work because it doesn't know what's what.
nick u should get bryant to bring u over my house one day cause i can get you fixed up. why must you have that first router? let pfsense do it all
Thanks got it working with the one lan. I am now trying to load balance. I have two wans coming in my pfsense, one is through ethernet and the other is wireless. I want to be able to tell it to only use a certain amount of each connection. For example on of my connections speed tests at 20,000 kbps and I only want to use 10,000 kbps. Can anyone help?
