Arplookup failed [SOLVED]
In the last few weeks, my log has been inundated with the following error message: "kernel: arplookup 192.168.100.1 failed: host is not on local network. The message is repeated 12 times every ten minutes. After an unclear amount of time, a new error appears: dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on dc0 to 188.8.131.52 port 67, followed immediately by dhclient: SENDING DIRECT. The new error is reported every three minutes. If I reboot the system, the entire process starts over.
I am using the pfsense version 1.2.2, which was installed on January 8, 2009. It may or may not be related, but that is also about the time I started seeing the error message. Also, at about the same time, I changed the pfsense DNS servers to openDNS. I have changed them back to the ISP-provided addresses, and the error continues. The ip address listed is the default LAN address for my cable modem. I can access the webGUI for the modem, but cannot change the address naturally, as I understand that the address is standard for that use.
I have shut down every client on the network except for the pfsense box, and the error continues. Consequently, I believe the problem resides there, and not on any other host.
Typically, I have spent hours scouring the web for clues about the problem, but cannot. Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
Are there no ideas on this? The arplookup message continues to a certain point, then it seems that the modem simply tries to contact the ISP with DHCPREQUEST to the ISP's server followed by SENDING DIRECT.
Any help would be appreciated.
I am beginning to think that there is no solution to this, or it is so simple that people are reluctant to tell me. I have now spent another few days looking for the source of the problem, and a possible solution. Every post even possibly related does not seem to fit. The error message, "kernel: arplookup 192.168.100.1 failed: host is not on local network" continues without stop, until the modem starts the DHCPREQUEST routine indefinitely. Are there no suggestions?
This problem was solved, thanks to a bounty I paid (well worth the money). See: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,18378.msg94747.html#msg94747
