How would I consider a device as "on the same network" when it's connected to a different network?

What feature would you lose? What functionality or feature are you gaining by having the Amplfi Alien configured as a router behind pfSense?
Why do you bother with two firewalls? What does the PFSense bring to your current design. Also bridging the two ports on the PFSense would have ZERO feature effect on your Alien. Personally, I'd lose the PFSense and just let the Unifi handle everything.
What? I only have ONE firewall. My pfSense firewall that handles all my wired connections. And the default one that comes with the Alien for all my wifi devices. Bridging two ports? What two ports? I was talking about putting my Alien in bridge mode. And what Unifi? I only own the Amplifi Alien and my pfSense router. The Alien has nothing compared to pfSense when it comes to configuration so why would I want to route all my wired connections on it???
>My pfSense firewall
>And the default one that comes with the Alien
So, **two** firewalls.
>However I don't want to lose **the** feature of the Alien by putting it into bridge mode.
Again, what feature? What are you gaining by not putting the Alien in bridge mode?
The traffic only goes through ONE firewall on any device...
Reddit at its finest. The post was about giving me advice not questioning my motives. Someone already help you're not needed here. smh
I wasn't questioning your motives; I was asking for more information so I could help someone who apparently didn't understand how their own system worked, and can't count, for that matter. But apparently you're all set.
