Router Automatically Down After 5 Mins

  • After power outage at office today, lost pfSense router.

    Plugged into UPS with surge protection along with all other network gear.

    Router powers up, but stays on for only 4-5 mins before automatically turning off.

    Unable to access UI during this timeframe, unable to connect to router, no ip address issued to cumputer directly connected.

    Looking for advice / direction.

  • Netgate Administrator

    What do you see on the console?

    Does it respond at all before powering off? Ping? SSH?

    I would guess at some sort of file system issue if it was powered off unexpectedly. The console error should show that though.


  • Consile not accessible, even from direct connect USB.

    Sending it in for service.

    Thanks for reply.
