DHCP ISP - autorization by hostname issue

  • Hi all. First, I'm sorry for my English.

    My ISP uses my hostname for issuing me a certain ('static') IP. However, the DHCP server becomes unavailable and available again, the hostname seems to not being reported to the server anymore, cause I receive some random IP. The only way to get it back is to reboot the firewall. But this is an issue, because if I boot with the WAN cable plugged in, the firewall hangs at the Configuring the WAN interface message (this is the second problem), so I have to unplug it and plug it in later, and now, again, the hostname is not being sent to the server. Both NICs are Realtek 8139, pfSense version is 1.2-RELEASE. Can anybody help me please?
