Bridged VMG1312-B10A & pfSense - Line Stats Configuration
« on: May 25, 2018, 08:34:23 AM »

Hi,

I'm just about to setup a new pfSense gateway and upgrade some of my network. I presently use a VMG1312-B10A in bridge mode with a Linksys e4200 running DD-WRT. While I'm in the process of upgrading things I want to configure things so I've got access to the GUI of the bridged VMG1312-B10A to view line stats.

Is there a configuration to allow GUI access to a bridged VMG1312-B10A, with pfSense, over the WAN port only, that is persistent?

Is it preferable/required to use the "two cable" method as detailed here: https://kitz.co.uk/routers/zyxel_VMG8324-B10A_bridge.htm? I'd really prefer not having to run a 2nd cable.

I've tried to search around and unfortunately I couldn't find any specific guides on this - sorry if there is one and I've missed it. Everything I found seemed to be for different router and modem combinations. I'm pretty much a networking noob in all honesty so ideally I would really appreciate some guidance that's specific and step-by-step.

Thanks for any help!

Just thought I'd confirm that worked perfectly for me - after I finally got around to setting it up!

I had tried following that pfSense documentation before asking here - however I think I worked out that my ISP was overriding the IP & subnet changes I'd made on the VMG1312-B10A via TR069. After I did a full reset, fresh firmware and clean config to the ROM-D, the pfSense side of things then worked just fine.

I also got baby jumbo frames working thanks to all the great information here - so that's a very nice bonus  :)
