PPPoE WAN wont auto connect

  • Hi all,

    Really need this fixed as soon as, can offer money to successful fix if that allowed.

    Vmware 6
    1 WAN (block of IPS)
    3 Internal LANs with VLAN

    The PPPoE does not auto connect if i disconnect it. It went off over night for few hours and never reconnected and not sure why. If i manually connect it everything works fine, no issues.

    Have attached pictures, noticed the WAN does not have an adaptor assigned yet it obtains a connection not sure if this has anything to do with it.

  • Noticed Pfsense WAN remains connected even if i disconnect the WAN modem cable and restart it. Is this normal?

  • Your gateway and monitor IPs are the same. If you change the monitor IP to something like google DNS or something you should get a representation of when the gateway is up or down from PF.
