Wifi Router on LAN
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:51:21 pm »
I have a wifi router on AP mode connected to the LAN on my pfsense box. It seems i cant get anything connected to wifi to access the internet. I have the router static IP set and the ethernet cable going from LAN on router to LAN on pfsense box. I can access the admin panel of the router and see connected devices from wifi and their IP addresses over LAN. What am I missing? Sorry I am new to pfsense!

The access point is on the wrong side of pfSense.  Put the modem into bridge mode and get another AP on the LAN side.

Do you have the appropriate default firewall rule (allow LAN Net to Any?)
