WAN does not renew DHCP?



  • Hi,

    First the basics:
    Version   1.2.3-RELEASE
    built on Mon Dec 7 20:21:30 EST 2009
    Platform nanobsd

    Hardware: Soekris 5501

    It seems like my WAN DHCP does not renew. The connection dies at random interval (it seems like 1 week between failures now).
    The fix is easy, just release and renew the WAN interface and it is running again.
    If i let it stay for a couple of hours the problem solves it selv (so it seems at the moment- i have only seen it "fix itself" one time and that was this night).
    The connection died around 0435 and was running again 0541 (there is a small delay until the survalience system detecs it is running)

    The box has been running for about a year without any hickups and now this is bugging me. Any ideas?
    It is a TDC ADSL  - not the HomeTrio, but a real DSL with the Speedstream and a Direct WAN IP (bonus info for the Danish readers ;-))
