I have read this thread and see people having success getting rid of the Vodafone router and using a Pfsense appliance.. I have also read to configure the wan to use vlan10 and dhcp. After restarting the modem, i sill am not getting assigned it says pending.
This device was used on the older cable system with an assigned static ip also from Vodafone.. I have asked for a static again, but understand that it was assigned through dhcp...
Not sure what else is important. Any suggestions welcome, need to get my Pfsense Wan working in all its glory. LOL
Hi there - pfSense is very easy to setup and im sure your just one step away.
Double check under Interfaces then (Assign) that you have the VLAN you created set as the WAN NIC. There really is only a couple steps to setup pfSense&FibreX DHCP so keep on the basics.
To add some more value to the forum - I have got ESXi running pfSense as a VM connected to FibreX with complete ease. As can image just do the VLAN tag on ESXi. I had it running on IBM server and now over to my little Aliexpress machine. Get over 900down easy with 35% CPU on the little machine. Highly recommend the Qotom-Q310G4, just look out the NICs are not in order. (3 and 4 are mixed up) But - I would run pfSense native to that Qotom machine as ESXi has crashed a couple of times when I was tweaking ESXi (but doesnt crash if left alone)
