[SOLVED] Wan DHCP not renewing
I have a 50 / 50 fiber line that gets converted to copper via an ONT then it goes into my pfsense box (xeon x3210 running 2.3.4-RELEASE)
The issue I am having is every 24 hours or so (more like 28 I think) the connection will stop working,
if I release and renew the wan in pfsense it will work for another 24 hours.
How can I automatically tell pfsense to release / renew the wan every 24 hours?
or is there some log a can look at to get more information as to whats going on, the only thing I can see is after it fails: "WAN_DHCP: sendto error: 13"
I had the same issue with a sophos install, but if I hook up an ASUS router it will release/renew every 24 hr on its own.
Ok I think I found the setting if anyone else has this issue
Under interfaces > Wan

in: Option modifiers
put: option dhcp-lease-time 86400;
I have this same problem, thanks for the tip… I'll try it out today.
