PfSense upgrade problem. 2.4.0 -> 2.4.1



  • Upgrade process went fine and the only problem is that I have lose my internet connection.
    My ISP it’s using VLAN 10, and did I need to configure or change anything after the upgrade?
    As far as I know there was some VLAN being worked on.

    And all I see in log now it’s wan_link0 PPPoE connection attempt messages



  • So far I have did following:-
    Power cycle ONT and pfSense machine
    Delete VLAN setting from PPPs and VLANs and added them and nothing worked.



  • Exact same problem, but I am on CenturyLink in the US and so have VLAN tag 201 setup.

    All was well on 2.4.0.

    I did the upgrade and it came back up and will not connect to the ONT.

    I put my backup c1100z back on the wire and it came right back online.

    I have gone as far as Reseting the whole machine to Factory default and setting it up again, that didn't work either.

    I have an ASUS RT-AC5300 in place of pfSense, and will prolly try a fresh install tomorrow.

    Have you managed to sort it out on your end?

    Got it, thank you.
    I will still end up doing a fresh install at the end I guess because last time I did was back in 2.2 or 2.3



  • I was going to respond with a link to the same thread - I have not had a chance to re-install and setup.  Pretty frustrating that a minor release brought down the whole thing.

    I just switched to PFSense a few months ago - Release notes or not, I would not have expected, in 30 years in the IT business, that a point release would be able to bring down my network because of an internal device naming convention, but then again, I did see SMS 1.2 and OS/2 do some pretty nasty things on upgrade.  So, note to self - 'stable' in the pfsense world means it has passed some testing, but ALWAYS read the forums first, point release or not.
