WAN takes VIP as address after outage.

  • I have a box running 2.4.1 (this has happened for a while since at least 2.3 and maybe longer)

    The box acquires its primary WAN address from the cable co. via DHCP..

    I have one static IP address which I assigned as a VIP (IP Alias).

    I had the WAN set to ignore DHCP from the modem address.  (Ive changed this as of two days ago so the WAN will get a 192.168.100.x address but hopefully correct after the lease runs out)

    Intermittently if the cable goes down and has to restart the WAN will take on the VIP address causing the box to go offline.  It won't correct without manual intervention.  Im watching closely to see if my change above changes this.
