• If pfSense is running (and the WAN cable is disconnected or the cable was not plugged in at startup), and the WAN cable is connected, the WAN interface doesn't stay up.

    Logs seem to continually repeat with this:

    After plugging the cable in and rebooting pfSense the interface works properly, until the cable is unplugged. This is on last night's full build BETA5-i386-20110131-1941, wasn't having this issue on the BETA5-i386-20110121-1519 build and earlier.
