I want to use an old mini PC(NexLink/AOpen MP57) as my access point to the house network via WiFi. The miniPC has both wired and wireless interfaces. I want the WiFi interface to connect to the house wifi and then wire the wired interface to my router(NetGear wp2000rptx3), which I now use as the access point. I thought I had it set up right(haven't taken the NexGear offline) but I can't get a WebGUI on the IP addresses I should(192.168.1.1). House Router has IP addresses in the 191.168.2.* range. I didn't manually set any IP addresses on the PfSense box and it's showing 192.168.169.2/24 as the IP for the Wan(Thought it would be a 192.168.2.*) and the correct 192.168.1.1 for the lan interface.

 

If I run Quick scan with Zenmap on my main PC of 192.168.169.2/24, It shows 192.168.169.1 as the only address that's up(that shows to be a belkin router, which would be the house router). Scanning 192.168.1.1 shows nothing up and 192.168.2.17(the old IP for the PfSense box) shows nothing either.

Given up on this for the day. I got to the webGUI by connecting the PfSense box to a seperate router(as ethernet in) and pluging my main computer into one of the ethernet out jacks. Now I can't get the WAN connection to work. All I can get is a No Carrier status and PfSense doesn't seem to be able to see any wireless networks, although it sees the wireless card.

 

There is a second minicard slot inside. What does the aux connection on the wireless card do as I have several laptop wireless cards around that I could put in.

 

PfSense system currently has an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6206 Model 62205anhmw

 

I've got:

Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN Model 4965AGN NM1

Atheros model AR5B125

Intel 512AN_HMW

Intel 4965AGN

and a Couple Broadcom cards I can't find a model number ontumblr_og6qm3yR4B1u130qco1_1280.png

 

 

Tried swapping in the Athos Card as that's the the PfSense guys work with so I've heard and still not getting anywhere.
