I just want a followup on Pfsense developers if there is an update fix on Apollo Lake issue? I am still on current and wanted to upgrade to 2.4.

Wireless / How do I integrate Unifi Ac lite to Pfsense
« on: December 04, 2017, 05:29:48 pm »
I just build my new Pfsense box 2.3.5 and would like to use 2 Unifi Ac Lite. I use pfsense for 10 wifi clients (Mac, IOS devices, Thinkpad laptop)  and 3 wired Roku connected to OpenVPN on selective routing.

Current setup:

Bridge Fiber modem (50 Dwn/50 Up) > Pfsense (Intel i340 T4 nic, > 5 port unmanaged gigabit switch > 2 Asus router as Wap.

I just want a simple setup and use Unifi Ac lite. My objectives are just to transition my off the shelf router I used before to Pfsense using one subnet.

How do I integrate Unifi Ac lite to Pfsense?

Do I need to buy a managed switch and Ubiquiti Unifi Cloud Key?

Any suggestions?

Parts list:

2 Unifi Ac lite with injector

Ubiquiti Unifi Cloud Key

Ubiquiti Networks PoE 48V 0.5A


Ubiquiti US-8 Unifi Switch


DHCP and DNS / I need help here. I am hitting the wall. Please help a noob.

I just had Pfsense 2.3.5 installed using ExpressVPN using OpenVPN. I use Expressvpn for geolocation on my 3 wired Roku. ExpressVPN support does not have any knowledge on Pfsense and just fishing for answers.

I was provided with Expressvpn media streamer and I was able to route my Lan and AP traffic to Vpn with no problem.

Netflix is tough for geolocation. I noticed Pfsense has DNS leaks as default. I found a solution to stop the leak on this link.

I was able to fix the leak base on the link provided. But the problem still persist I can not get my Netflix, Amazon prime, and Hulu to function. I was able to browse the internet with no problem some sites are not resolve by DNS.

I am currently using Services/DNS forwarder. Services/ DNS Resolver /General Settings are on as default but I had to turn it off. I cant use both of them at the same time.

I am at a lost here. This is unchardtered territory for me. I have an Asus RT AC87U and its functioning well on ExpressVPN and keep it as a spare for the moment. But I want to learn Pfsense because the sky is the limit and has very good potential.

Here is my current setup:

50mbps down, 50 mbps up on a bridge fiber connection.

Fiber modem> Pfsense> 5 port switch> Asus RT AC68

3 Roku connected to 5 port switch + Asus as AP

Asrock 3455 itx, 4 gigs DDR3 sodimm, Intel SSD, Intel i340 T4.

All devices are connected thru wifi except Roku.

I also need help on how to do selective routing on some devices for geolocation.

I am new to this forum and decided to build Pfsense.


Asrock J3455B ITX


40GB Intel SSD

4 GB DDR3 1600 sodimm

I need information what is the best way to fit the Intel card on the motherboard. I read somewhere in this forum that it involves cutting either the motherboard or the nic.

What is the best way to do it? The motherboard is brand new while the nic is used.

I am also open to suggestion on using a riser card if it fits on Corsair 250D but I have no idea what to buy.
