OK I was totally wrong on that one
I grabbed an old box I had in the closet that had pfSense 1.2 on it. Fired it up, reset to defaults. I then, using the console interface, set up the VLAN. Using the GUI I setup the MAC Spoofing and created the VLAN interface.
BAM I got internet access.
I was excited to see the Google homepage. I then tried to navigate to OCN, Facebook...etc. It would just sit at "sending request". Wouldn't even time out.
I was able to ping all sites via FQDNs
I was able to trace routes perfectly
I was able to access ALL of Google's services...really weird.
I figured it was DNS caching so I rebooted my machine and the old pfSense box, just incase.
BAM no internet access anymore.
What is going on!?! I'm pulling my hair out here. I'm about to toss all of my networking equipment out the window!!
