Yes, sorta. I plugged https://192.168.0.1 into my android phone's browser
and I got the security certificate warning and then was presented with ddwrt
... then I went wtf!?! I forgot, my old linksys running ddwrt was still
running and it never occurred to me to unplug it.

So now that the interferring linksys has been shut down, I checked my iPod
and android phone, both get ip's in the 169.254.40.0 range (not the
192.168.0.0 range of my LAN). I tried assigning a manual IP to my iPod and I
was unable to navigate the LAN at all.
When I go to Services -> DHCP Server I get the following warning at the top.
** *The DHCP Server can only be enabled on interfaces configured with
static IP addresses.
Only interfaces configured with a static IP will be shown.
I'm not sure if this applies to me or not and why my devices are not getting
a wireless IP in the proper range (192.168.0.200-192.168.0.245) and I see no
WAN tab under this message, just LAN.
Incidentally, when I reboot, I see the following:
pfSense is now shutting down ...
pflog0: promiscuous mode disabled
Waiting (max 60 seconds) for system process `vnlru' to stop...done
Waiting (max 60 seconds) for system process `bufdaemon' to stop...done
Waiting (max 60 seconds) for system process `syncer' to stop...

All buffers synced.
