I settled on setting up my network, using the pfSense as the router to my network. I have it pretty much set up and all my VLANs are configured and working properly. Here is the topology of the network:
It is currently working, but I know that my configuration is incorrect and I am looking for guidance on how to properly configure my mgmt network. It is in the current configuration, because of a lot of "hacking", and like I said, it is working, but I want to have a solid understanding of how it really should be configured and hope that I stop shooting myself in the foot with experimentation.
Here is what I currently have:
1) pfSense LAN: 10.5.5.0/24 w/DHCP
2) pfSense OPT (LAN2): 10.3.1.0/24 w/DHCP
3) pfSense SWITCH (bridge of LAN and LAN2): 10.1.1.0/24 w/DHCP
4) AIO MGMT VLAN: 10.5.5.0
5) AIO 1930 connected to pfSense LAN2 (OPT)
6) AP11D connected to pfSense LAN (as shown in diagram above)
I am wanting to assign Static IPs, and was hoping to use the SWITCH as the AIO MGMT VLAN. I had assigned static IPs to all my devices on this. I had also set the MGMT VLAN to this same network using 10.1.1.0. I was concerned that maybe VLAN tagging was causing some conflict between the AIO VLAN 1 and pfSense VLAN1, so I made some changes and played around with it. However, I had some problems with getting all of my APs up.
I am not looking for help with pfSense config, but I would like recommendation/advice on what value I should use for the AIO MGMT and whether I should use this BRIDGE within pfSense or keep both LAN and LAN2 as two separate networks and use FW rules to allow them to interact with each other.
As I mentioned, I currently have all of my devices up with the configuration above and it is working. (I'm actually kind of surprised about that.) Here are the IPs of each of my AIO devices: The BASE AP11D is connected directly to the pfSense LAN port. The two devices on 10.1.1.0 network are statically defined. The 1930 switch, also has a statically defined IP, but it is on the 10.3.1.0 network. The other AP11D was not working with the 10.1.1.0 static IP I gave it. It showed up as a wired client, but did not start as a device. I reset it and cleared the static IP, and then it was able to establish on the 10.3.1.0 network and is working fine. (I had DHCP disabled on both LAN and LAN2, with everything on the SWITCH 10.1.1.0 network and even AIO MGMT set to 10.1.1.0, which is what I assumed was the correct configuration, but couldn't seem to get that to work.)
Also, I have not closed any of my firewall rules on my internal networks, so they are completely open at this time.
