This is my first topic on level1, and i hope it will be helpful for some.
Ater I installed my pfsense, I wanted to configure the connection and go online, but since etisalat made it a bit tricky to setup 3rd party routers, I couldn't configure it at first, searched the web and no luck, so here is how:
1- set your pfsense and finish the setup wizard as dhcp for the wan port.
2- under interfaces got to "assign"
3- now this is important, first you have to create a vlan, click on VLANs then add new one, under the "parent interface" choose your WAN port, "VLAN tag" you have to get it from your old router, priority is 0, and save.
4- create "PPP" interface, so click on PPPs and add, the connection type will be PPPoE, the link interface will be the VLAN that you have just created, fill in your user name and password that etisalat provided and save.
5- go back to your interfaces/assignment page and choose under the WAN interface the port that you just created, it will look something like this "PPPoE(igb0_vlanxx) - yourusername.
And that's it, I hope this will help.
