DNS Resolver keeps going down



  • I have this problem
    WHen i have DNS Resolver enable it works for a about 20-30 min then i get

    This site can’t be reached

    wololo.net’s server DNS address could not be found.
    Search Google for wololo net
    ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED

    if i wait a few minutes and refresh it start to work again, i dont see anything in the logs for DNS
    Everything works good when i disable it.

    DHCP Registration is check
    Static DHCP is check

    under DNS server setting
    i have 2 dns setup and
    DNS Server Override check



  • DHCP Registration is check

    This means Unbound is restarted every time a new DHCP lease comes in (yes I consider this a bug - it's an old issue)

    Search Google for wololo net

    I don't know what Unbound (the DNS resolver) has to do with Google ….

    Everything works good when i disable it.

    Then who does your DNS then on the pfSense box ?

    under DNS server setting
    i have 2 dns setup and
    DNS Server Override check

    DNS Resolver / Unbound goes directly to the "top 13 TLD DNS masters" and works down-hill from there.
    I never added any DNS servers my self (don't know why I should do that).
    I'm using Unbound/DNS resolver as it was delivered by pfSense. Works great the last ….10 or more years.

    Thank you for this info, because i believe this was the issues every time a new pc was getting into the wireless network it would happen. i will disable this when i get home and test.

    THanks again this was driving me crazy

    Is there a place where known bugs are documented ?
