Gateway Showing offline in web gui but internet is working!

  • Hi All,

    i have simple setup of pfsense 2.4.4 with one Wan interface and one Lan interface. my internet is working fine on client computers as well as i m able to ping anywhere from pfsense WAN and Lan interfaces. but my gate way status on GUI is showing offline even i have change payload from 0 to 1.

    any suggestions plz?


  • Sometimes the gateway monitor has a problem with your upstream for whatever reason. Go to System - Routing - Gateways. There you will find options as to whether to monitor the gateway at all, what to do if down, and what to actually monitor.

  • thanks for reply kom. yeh in gateways i have set the gateway monitoring and tried different open dns servers there but still no success :(

  • Then just disable it if it isn't working.

  • @KOM but bro i wanna implement failover in future. for tht i need gateway to be shown up

  • Good luck to you. I've seen several cases of users whose gateway monitoring wasn't working, just as yours isn't, but I don't think the actual cause was ever discovered, or if it was I certainly didn't hear about it.
