Recently I am having some problem with my pfSense box and the router in bridge mode. This topic describe very well my problem
Currently I don’t have any solution to solve the problem. A possible workaround may be leave to the router the management of pppoe connection and set pfSense WAN with a static IP. To avoid the double NAT problem I have put my pfSense WAN IP on the DMZ of the router.
In the last days I am having some trouble running 5GHz 802.11n with this device and last version of OpenWRT. It turn out that b43 open source driver can’t work in N mode, so I switched to the proprietary WL broadcom driver. However, it cause my router to crash after a client connect to it.
I’m working on it.

You can check if your interface is connected to an AP with
iw wlan0 link
and the output is something like this
