Ideally
Modem -> WAN of PFsense
LAN -> WAN / LAN of D-Link depending

If you are going to turn off DHCP keep the Router Address in the same subnet as the pfsense box.

For example if your are making it 192.168.1.1 for the pfsense box make it 192.168.1.2 for the router.

Well, I was going to use the D-link for the Wireless AP only.

So, My modem going into the WAN port of Pfsense.

LAN of Pfsense box going into my switch

Switch going to PCs and my D-link (For wireless AP)

Just figure if you want to have one big network you can turn off DHCP and put it on the same IP Network / Subnet as the pfSense Box.

Well, I've got 3 wired PCs. And I connect more occasionally (Working on them for a living) and my wireless. (Laptops, phones, tabs)

Well if your AP has Gigabit Ports, there is no use to not use them.
