Problem with Interface Status Page
built on Fri Apr 17 14:09:47 EDT 2009
On the interface status page, it shows my WAN as down with no ip address– which is wrong. ifconfig shows the interface as up and running, and so does the dashboard. (see attached screenshot snips)
$ ifconfig re0
re0: flags=8843 <up,broadcast,running,simplex,multicast>metric 0 mtu 1500
options=389b <rxcsum,txcsum,vlan_mtu,vlan_hwtagging,vlan_hwcsum,wol_ucast,wol_mcast,wol_magic>ether 00:90:7f:32:8a:92

and yes, I did click renew to see what would happen. Nothing– it came back the same way.
Also, forgot to mention in the original post, at one point, I issued a command "ifconfig re0 down" while testing something else. I of course later issued "ifconfig re0 up." I don't know if that had anything to do with this or not, but I don't know why the status page would pick up the "down" and not the "up."
