Strange DNS issue, any ideas?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So I'm trying to set up a new wireless router and I want to be able to retain of all of the benefits it has, as well as use my internal DHCP/DNS server.

Currently, my LAN is on 192.168.1.1 and the wireless is using 192.168.0.1.

My setup is: Cable Modem -> pfsense Gateway -> LAN -> WiFi Router -> Laptop
The dns on the laptop points to the router, which then points to the gateway. The internet works just fine, but I can't find local addresses via DNS!

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Your gateway has to be less than any internal routers. Set your wireless to 192.168.100.1

When running two routers, you need to have the 'internal' one with a higher value than the gateway router. Back when i only needed wifi for casual use i ran my Linksys wired router with a static IP of 192.168.1.1 and my D-Link wireless at 192.168.100.1. You can control the gateway value of the wifi router in the setup page.

Heres what it looks like on my Linksys WRT54G

But i have to ask, why not just use your wifi router as the primary?

Thanks for that, I shall try once I get home this afternoon.

I want the benefits of having the advanced pfsense firewall options, while also having all of the advanced options of the gaming router.

No?
IP numeric value doesn't mean anything. You could put your wifi one on 192.168.0.1


Personally I would connect the other device using the LAN ports and lump everything into the same subnet.

I tried that, but I can no longer contact the Wi-Fi router once that happens :/

If you wanted a headache you could use a hostfile? (and i agree with beer no difference whta the numbers are haha)

Once quick thing, have you turned DNS Off on the wifi and on on the PF? Or maybe clone the dns from the pf to the wireless?

and set you computer dns to use the pf (or however you have it set up?)

Also dosnt the router have the same options for the firewall? (its just all iptables i think)

Pfsense looks at 8.8.8.8 for DNS. It assigns 192.168.1.1 for DNS lookups (itself). I've tried setting the WiFi to do DNS relay both on and off, using both the Wi-Fi router and pfsense as assigned DNS servers. Neither ever turn up local lookups. My DNS domain is "home" so that rules out the "local" 'bug' in mDNS
