Connection Resets - Restarting packages



  • Greetings forum,

    I have seen this issue reported before as a bug with release 2.2, however I am running release 2.4.

    My connection resets every 40 minutes or so with the following entry in the system log "pfSense package system has detected an IP change or dynamic WAN reconnection" followed a restart of all packages etc... The assigned IP from my ISP does not change in between however.

    Its quite frustrating and any help would be much appreciated.

    What sort of connection is it?

    Restarting packages is expected is the WAN goes down. You can limit some unnecessary actions if you only have one WAN by setting Disable Gateway Monitoring Action on the WAN gateway in System > Routing > Gateways, edit the WAN gateway.
