pfSense Not Giving LAN Internet Access

Are the pfSense DNS settings correct, are your machines getting ip addresses, can you ping anyone else on the lan ?

I figured it out... I had to set the default gateway to my PPPoE connection! xD Thanks!

Hai all. My LAN Is not receiving any Internet access, but my pfSense box is (presumably). I can ping any website from the pfSense Box, but not from a PC on my LAN. I have my Actiontec GT701D DSL Modem in Transparent Bridging Mode. When my Modem is doing the normal routing functions, it connects to my ISP (TDS Telecom) with DHCP. So I figured I would try and use DHCP on my pfSense box to connect to the modem in transparent bridging mode. (Didn't work at all) So I just used PPPoE and my login I use to pay the bill on their website (I don't have any other logins from them) And it seems to work (link is up, I have a WAN ip, subnet mask of 255.255.255.255, a gateway IP that looks legit, DNS servers, and I can see the packet count where I pinged linustechtips.com and google.com). The issue is I can't access the Internet from the LAN. If I ping a website using the website's IP or web address (from a PC on the LAN), I have no reply (except the pfSense host saying its unreachable.) I haven't done anything with gateways in pfSense because every forum thread on google about gateways seems to be about multiple WAN's. Thanks!

Please help, Andrew.
