OK Just installed a pfsense router between my Linksys WAP (LAN) and my AT&T Uverse Residential Gateway. So it goes:
(LAN) -> Linksys Router -> pfsense box -> Uverse RG -> (WAN)
Weird part. From any host on the LAN, I can ping the RG address and access each device's web interface.http://192.168
.2.1 (Linksys Router)https://192.168.5.100
The Uverse RG is giving the pfsense box an IP via DHCP -- The LAN port on the pfsense box is static and giving the Linksys router a static IP.The problem
: No hosts on the LAN can access the internet. I'm not 100% convinced it's pfsense because pfsense is letting me go right through it to access the Uverse RG's web interface.
I don't think it's a DNS thing because I grabbed google, yahoo, etc IPs and tried to hit them going through the above setup and no luck.My pfsense setup is a default setup
. What are some obvious things I may be missing? I haven't set up any firewall rules so maybe that's it? WAN port configuration? Maybe something on the Uverse box?
ADDITIONAL NOTES: When I had the linksys router getting an DHCP address from the Uverse RG just yesterday and for a year prior it worked fine. The Uverse service isn't down because I can switch to the Uver's RG's wifi and immediately get internet access.
