WAN will not obtain DHCP address

  • I see DHCP requests going to my provider (Verizon Westel 2100 in bridge mode) but I get no DHCPOFFER from them.  The DSL is up and running on my Cisco 3640, plug the service into the pfsense box and it does not work.  Any ideas?

  • Problem turned out to be a broke ass Juniper (Unishpere) Erx that had to have the current DHCP lease cleared.  It would ignore new requests or releases.
