pfSense Disconnecting

  • Recently, my internet stops working for unknown reasons. When I restart my pfSense firewall/router, I get the internet back for a short period of time and then it stops working, again. I had upgraded to pfSense 2.4.4 when my router first showed that there was an update, which has been a while ago now - I can't tell you the date I upgraded. Anyway, when I look at the pfSense console, before logging in, I see the following:

    ukbd0: at uhub1, port 1, addr 2 (disconnected)
    ukbd0: detached
    uhid0: at uhub1, port 1, addr 2 (disconnected)
    uhid0: detached
    ukbd1: at uhub1, port 1, addr 2 (disconnected)
    ukbd1: detached

    I don't know what this means but I'm wondering if it has anything to do with not being able to get to the internet intermittently. Anyone have any ideas on what may be causing this? Thanks in advance.

    P.S. - A little searching shows this may be a USB port drop.

    Yes, that is usb devices disconnecting. Do you have an external USB hub?

    It could be some power saving option kicking in.

    What hardware are you using?


  • I don't have any USB hubs connected to my pfSense firewall/router, however, I do have my USB keyboard and mouse connected to my pfSense computer through my KVM. The thing is, I've had these connected for a very long time and this is the first time this has started to occur. Odd that I haven't seen it before.

    Is the KVM doing something odd then perhaps?

    Try running with a real keyboard as a test instead. Or just without a keyboard.


  • My KVM hasn't been doing anything out of the ordinary at all. Works just as good as the day I purchased it. I'll try a restart first, and if that doesn't work, I'll do some further troubleshooting. Thanks.
