1.2.3 upgrade to 2.0 blew up, fresh build, just a couple questions…

  • Well this morning I couldn't log in, first thought the pfSense router (A Soekris 5501) was down but it turned out that DHCP just wasn't working.

    I assigned myself a static IP and things are working again but I would like to know why DHCP stopped working about an hour after putting a fresh copy of 2.0rc1 on it…it was working then.

    Any ideas anyone


  • Ok, still trying to figure out what I am doing wrong here…

    Went into DHCP server and enabled it on WiFi with a range of to (LAN is through

    Still can't get an address, what am I forgetting, and if it some rule, please note the syntax?
