Strange occurrence after update to 2.4 or 2.4.1



  • After updating from 2.3.4 to 2.4 or 2.4.1, i can not exactly figure out, lan connections gets every day lost.
    i use the intel i210 nics and had never a problem before the updates. in the logs nothing. (system, firewall…)

    it does not show any problems in gui. (networkinterfaces)

    two ways to correct the error.

    1. deactivate the nic that does not work anymore and then reactivate it again ! -> everything ok.
    or
    2. reboot the system -> everything ok.

    i think there is someting wrong with one of these updates !!



  • Can you provide any information about the NIC adapters please.





  • Same problem here.
    Our firewall worked fine with pfSense 2.3.4.

    We use a firewall with 8 NICs:

    igb0: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">igb1: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">igb2: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">igb3: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">igb4: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">igb5: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">igb6: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">igb7: <intel(r) 1000="" pro="" network="" connection,="" version="" -="" 2.5.3-k="">After updating to 2.4.1 we start to have problem on NIC igb2 and igb3, connected to switches Allied X510.

    NICs igb4, igb5 and igb6 are connected to external routers and they work fine.

    Deactivating and reactivating NICs igb2 and igb3, they start working fine.

    Restarting the firewall the problem, sometimes, returns.

    Thanks for you help
