WAN link keeps disconnecting after a few hours



  • I have a PPPOE connection from my ISP (gigabit full duplex). I use pfsense on a Pentium G4400 with 4gb ram ddr4 and an ssd. The network in my home is something like this:
    ISP's modem ->> pfsense ->> Netgear gs748ts 48port switch ->> clients (2 servers, 3 personal PCs, wi-fi router, gpu miner)
    My problem is that pfsense's WAN connection just keeps disconneting at random (usually a few hours in). I should also mention that on one of my servers (they are rack servers), I host a small webserver with 2 websites (they don't have traffic at all) and a torrent daemon (deluge). I have managed to save a log before I rebooted it (reboot is the only way to fix the problem at the moment).
    I should also mention that this is my first time when I use pfsense, so I'm not that good with it. I would be thankful if you could help me.
    Edit: I forgot to tell you that my ISP uses dynamic IPs, so everytime i reconnect I receive a new IP, and after a few days, usually, it changes automatically anyway.
    Here is the systemlog:

    @draand28 said in WAN link keeps disconnecting after a few hours:

    Nov 11 10:31:39 kernel re1: watchdog timeout
    Nov 11 10:31:39 kernel re1: link state changed to DOWN

    That is your problem.
    Two potential solutions to that. The better one is the swap out that Realtek NIC for an Intel one. If that's not possible you could try running the alternative driver:

  • Thank you! I have just updated the driver with the one you mentioned and I did some iperf tests and it looks like it's stable. Cheers!
