WLAN vanishes when bridged LAN port has no link



  • I have a pretty simple setup. 100% defaults except i have an atheros wireless card in access point mode bridged to a LAN port.

    If the LAN port has no link the wireless doesn't pass data. As soon as I plug something in the wireless starts working again.

    Anyone experienced this issue? Is it a bug or do I just need to make sure my bridged LAN ports always have a link.



  • @syshackmin:

    do I just need to make sure my bridged LAN ports always have a link.

    Yes. See last few replies in http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,13351.15.html



  • Ah yea, thanks for that.

    Wish the search function would have brought that up. Must have missed the right keywords. :P

    Seems like 2.0 might resolve the issue all together. Might give that a try since this is just a research system at the moment. So far its quite impressive even with the occasional quirk.
