So, I’ve got pfSense running on bare metal and a TP-Link Archer c9 with DD-WRT running. I’m trying to set a static ip address for my TP-Link for the WAN of 192.168.1.2 and a static LAN ip address of 192.168.1.3. Problem is, it’s not handing out ip addresses and I don’t know why, and it’s frustrating me to no end.
ISP Modem > pfSense (LAN:192.168.1.1) > TP-Link (WAN:192.168.1.2) + (LAN:192.168.1.3)
On the TP-Link configuration:
WAN Static IP 192.168.1.2
WAN Subnet 255.255.255.0
WAN Gateway 192.168.1.1
On the TP-Link configuration
LAN Static IP 192.168.1.3
LAN Subnet 255.255.255.0
LAN Gateway 192.168.1.1
DHCP Services is OFF on TP-Link
DHCP Services are ON for pfSense
When I try to connect to the TP-Link I am not getting any ip assigned via DHCP, which tells me pfSense isn’t handing out an ip address even though I have it set as the default gateway. Do I need to do anything on the pfSense side to get this working?
Thanks for reading.
