I have a pfSense as my main router and Im using DD-WRT as a AP.

When I connect to the DD-WRT, DNS breaks completely. I can ping 8.8.8.8 but I cannot resolve for example google.com

Why do I know it is DD-WRT's fault? Because If I manually set my DNS server to 8.8.8.8 it works perfectly.

How the fuck do I fix this POS DD-WRT to work correctly?

so you run double NAT?? than what are your DNS settings
on Pfsense ?? i guess 8.8.8.8 wants to take over but interferes with pfSense DNS settings, so you have to use either DD-WRT in WAP mode or forwarder mode or use it as a proper AP gateway with DHCP and DNS settings on and put pfSense in bridge mode...
