PPPoE Problem

  • It seems that something has changed since December in the way PPPoE is handled.

    Basically, I could previously power cycle my DSL modem and pfSense would notice that it is down. When I do this today on 2.0 beta and before (in December and early January) on the latest 1.x release, it no longer worked "immediately". I mean it eventually notices that something is wrong, but it lost the capability to know right away. From what I can see it now takes a few minutes for the entire process to come back together where it previously only took seconds.

    I am sorry if my observation is not very technical and detailed, but I thought I should share it anyhow.

    If there are any logs I can provide I will do so. I can also run some additional tests if needed.

    Best regards,
