Issues with hub 4 and pfsense

Hello All,

For the past three weeks i have been struggling getting the hub 4 to work with my pfsense build. The pfsense router does get a WAN ip address from the hub 4 (which is in modem mode) however there is no internet connectivity. Pinging 1.1.1.1 from the pfsense does not work and there are no replies, nor can i ping any websites from client nodes. 

Been absolutely picking my brain on this issue and would appreciate any help 🙏

 

FYI - pfsense (custom build ) was configured in advance before installation but only things such as subnets and DNS servers were configured.

Re: Issues with hub 4 and pfsense

You need to enable NAT.

Are you able see PING going to VM gateway?

Can you connect a PC to the hub in modem mode and get that working (power off hub for 2mins unplug replug Ethernet cable) then copy the PC MAC to the pfsense WAN interface.

Re: Issues with hub 4 and pfsense

Outbound NAT on the pfsense is set to automatic. Attached is an image of the full config for that page.

Regarding your question about the ping which i assume you mean the local 192.168.100.1 gateway, I did not receive any pings

I followed your steps and cloned my PC's MAC and it still didn't fix the issue Screenshot 2022-08-07 123320.png

Re: Issues with hub 4 and pfsense

But did you get just a PC connected to the hub in modem mode working?

Re: Issues with hub 4 and pfsense

Just tested pfsense here in a VM and it works just fine with defaults not sure why your having a problem.

Maybe set on the WAN for IPv6 to none?

Re: Issues with hub 4 and pfsense

May i ask what the specs of your build is and the NIC you are using?

Also are you using the hub 4?

Re: Issues with hub 4 and pfsense

On super hub 1

Well like a say I tested pfsense in a VM as in by VirtualBox so specs don't really mean any thing but the host is a i5-11400 and the WAN was with a USB 3.0 to RJ45 with VM by bridge as intel pro/1000 MT.

But its odd your getting DHCP to work and get a IP so the rest should work
