Need to get wireless access to my ethernet LAN - WRVS4400N

Unanswered Question
Apr 17th, 2009

I've got a LAN with a pfsense Firewall / DHCP server. I used to use a WRT54G for wireless access to the network but it recently fried. I purchased a WRVS4400n to replace it but I'm having trouble configuring it to work like my old WRT54G. Here's what I need:

T1 -> Firewall / DHCP -> SR2024 Switch -> WRVS4400N as a wireless bridge.

Try as I might, even selecting the DCHP passthrough, it doesn't work. My LAN is 192.168.1.x and my DHCP server is also the DNS server. I cannot get the WRVS4400N to work correctly on this network. I want to be able to use all of my LAN resources from the wireless connection, but it won't. Can someone please help?

I have this problem too.

Thanks, but it doesn't work. The device gets an IP just fine but it does not do any DHCP relaying. Even when I manually set my laptop to a LAN IP and connect it to a wired port it is unable to get to the internet. The documentation doesn't mention much about setting up a DHCP relay. Any additional help would be much appreciated.
