By default, PFSense blocks WAN to LAN traffic. If you want WAN to LAN traffic, you will need to allow it (add rules on both the WAN and LAN sides). But you might want to notice something else. If PFSense is operating as a straight up router where you don't want NATing of the LAN packets, then you

[pfSense] Multiple routing tables

I'd suggest installing pfSense at a home location for benefits that pfSense provides. The ability for you to see what is going on on your network is much greater than with any of the consumer routers. If you get a little Netgate SBC, you can have a ofSense router with the same size and power
