Crash after upload speed test



  • Hi, im runnung pfsense on Atomic pi. Pfsense does routing on single nic with vlan setup for different networks including the wan side. On the wan side im connecting with pppoe to a ftth modem. The speed should be 70/70. But when im trying to do a speedtest on the wan side it crashes when it comes to the upload test. Download test works fine. The box isnt responding anymore when the upload test begins.
    Is there a easy fix for this? I saw there are a few tweaks in loader.conf but no luck for me yet.

    Not responding at the GUI? SSH? via the console?

    Do you have a crash report?

    Any sort of logged error?

    What NIC does that use?

    Hi, i can ping it but nothing else.. i dont have serial console because it fails to boot if i enable the uarts. The nic is a Realtek RTL8111. Where can i find the logs/enable logging? Cheerz

    In Status > System Logs. Check in particular for any watchdog timeout errors from the Realtek driver. If you see those you might try the alternative driver: https://forum.netgate.com/topic/135850/official-realtek-driver-binary-1-95-for-2-4-4-release

    If it's still responding to ping though that may not be the issue. Really need console access to see what's happening.

  • I tried the driver but no luck. just kernel panic.....???
    Anyway, is there a way i could use a serial to usb for serial console?
    I tried uplcom and it works, but im not sure how to connect it to the serial console.

  • Finaly i got the serial console working and found out there is a watchdog timeout of the realtek chip
    re0: watchdog timeout
    re0: link state changed to DOWN
    re0.1: link state changed to DOWN
    re0.1001: link state changed to DOWN
    re0.3001: link state changed to DOWN
    bridge0: link state changed to DOWN
    re0: link state changed to UP
    re0.1: link state changed to UP
    re0.1001: link state changed to UP
    re0.3001: link state changed to UP
    bridge0: link state changed to UP

    How can i fix it?


  • Netgate Administrator

    The only fix for that I'm aware of is using the alternative driver. Other than swapping out the NIC which obviously isn't an option here.

    I would post in the driver thread and see if anyone else has seen the same issues as you.

  • I tried it again, now it works....
    Not sure what happened...
    Maybee the reinstall from scratch helped...
    Thank you


  • Netgate Administrator

    Ah, nice! Fingers crossed that fixes the timeout issue.
