Interface mismatch, sis0 does not exist



  • I am running pfsense 1.0.1 LiveCD on a Dell Optiplex GX110 with its integrated network card and a DLink DWL-530TX.

    After doing the initial interface configuration, I assign one interface to the LAN and the other to WAN, everything to this point works fine.

    After any reboot, I get 'LAN sis0 interface mismatch – Running interface assignment option."

    This appears to wipe out any configuration I have done on the other interface, and in effect starts me over new.

    So far, I have tried moving to the configuration to a floppy disc, and this doesn't seem to help.

    I seached the forums, and on google, and havn't found much with answers to this problem.

    Any help would be great!  Thanks!



  • Option 99 installs to the hard drive.  Configuration is in ram otherwise on LiveCD and you need to use a USB key chain drive if you dont plan on installing.

    Is storing the configuration on a floppy disc not advisable?  I have a USB pendrive here handy, its 128 but this system doesn't support boot from USB.

    Using Option 99, all that is given to me is "installation was not successful"

    Thanks
