Can't allocate llinfo



  • Hi all,

    In Status -> System Logs -> General, I'm getting tonnes of these errors:

    I've looked everywhere but I can't find a cause. Any ideas?

    You get that if you have something defined on that interface that is not responding to ARP. Usually a gateway.

  • usually a <motorolla> cable modem when the coax end goes offline


  • Netgate Administrator

    Yeah, it could be something that's actually stopped responding or it could be an old gateway that you no longer use that is still defined in the config and can be removed.

  • Thanks very much guys. I can't figure out where that IP came from, but it must have been handed down via DHCP on that WAN connection. Either way, it's not happening anymore. The WAN connection in question is a fixed-wireless NBN connection, so not a cable modem. Anyway, solved for now, thanks again.

    The most common time I see this is when my cable connection renews DHCP and switches to a different subnet. Some states are still pointing at the old gateway which is no longer valid, thus the error.

    I suspect a similar issue happened there, probably as @heper said, it came from the cable modem. Lots of cable modems will hand you a private address if you lose upstream sync.
