Router intermittently crashing

  • Hey ya'll,

    I'm experiencing an issue where my PfSense box will randomly crash throughout the day.

    When it crashes, clients connected via Ethernet will simply lose their connections, they won't receive IP addresses and statically assigning them does nothing, I'm unable to ping or ssh the router. The thing I can do to bring it back up is rebooting it via button.

    Haven't tried connecting over VGA or Serial yet since I can ssh in when it's back online. What I should be looking for? I've checked system.log and couldn't see anything useful.

  • can be anything. connect a monitor (or serial) and take pictures.
    it also can't hurt to copy/paste the system log.

    it might hardware or mbufs or …
