dhcp give out ip address with a 255.255.255.255 netmask
* this done by one of the isp i use. it give us local ip (10.xxx.xxx.xxx) with 255.255.255.255 netmask
* perfect security to give wlan user this ip/netmask. this way, each connected client cannot see each other. the only connection they have is to the internet, through pfSense
* dont need to setup complex rules or vlan anymore
With this configuration, Windows assigns a static route to the default gateway through the relevant interface. Linux doesn't though, so there exists the problem of the gateway being unreachable (i.e. non-local).

Did I get something wrong? Does this sort of setup work well with a Linux client?
