No WAN



  • Hi,

    I am having problems setting up my system.

    I have a WiMax Satellite that is delivering Internet to a Cisco Linksys Internet and VOIP router supplied and managed by my ISP with the Satellite set as 192.168.1.1. My VOIP is 192.168.1.30 (internal and hidden) and my DMZ'd connection as 192.168.1.5.

    The DMZ'd connection is currently fed into my own NetGear FVS318N router, which uses the 192.168.1.5 as the WAN and 192.168.1.1 as the Gateway and enables me to use 192.168.0.0/24 as my own internal network with a mix of static and dhcp addresses. Everything seems to work, including email server, Web server and IPTV.

    If I replace my router with my new pfSense firewall with NIC1 configured as the WAN as above and NIC2 configured as my LAN as above, with NIC3 as my management interface and NIC4 currently unassigned. A dedicated IPMI NIC in also running.

    Yet I cannot communicate from any device on the LAN through to the WAN not even a ping to 8.8.8.8. So effectively I am isolated.

    Can anyone please suggest a way Forward? Using 2.2.6 version.

    Thanks and kind regards,

    Can you ping 192.168.1.1 when you set pfsense to 192.168.1.5?
