Hey all, just got a pfSense router configured for my whole house, but as we already had a Belkin RT3200 with OpenWRT flashed I figured I'd reuse it as an AP. pfSense is configured on the LAN side with an Intel I350-T4 with all four ports in a network bridge (we have no switch currently, we're going to be getting one but for now we had no explicit need for one). The RT3200 is plugged into this card and therein the LAN Bridge, alongside all other LAN devices.
I followed the Dummy Access Point configuration guide. Connecting devices to the AP's LAN switch ports works fine, however, Wi-Fi devices will connect to the AP and be assigned an IP but be unable to connect to WAN. Pinging devices on the internal network works fine, but are unable to make connections outside of the LAN, e.g. pinging 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 or google.com. Also, notably, Wi-Fi devices are DHCP assigned IP's ranging upwards from 100 where pfSense has been assigning from its given range of 2-254 for LAN devices on this subnet. DHCP and Firewall are also disabled on boot.

/etc/config/wireless, though you'll notice these are all set to defaults as nothing is working yet

Settings for devices plugged into the router's switch are identical to when it's connected wirelessly as far as I can tell, yet while wired is fine, wireless refuses to communicate with the outside internet. I cannot figure out what configuration step I'm missing here to make this work as plenty of other people with near identical network config files and devices have made it work. Android devices outright refuse to connect and rapidly connect and disconnect until you ask it to forget the AP. I'm new to pfSense so it may be a problem to instead bring to their forums but I'm just trying to cover my bases for the time being
