Problem with dhcp on wan interface
quick question hopefully.
I just made the transition from ipcop to pfsense (huge imrpovement if you ask me). Love all the extra features, but running into one issue. Everything runs great for a while, however when i wake up in the morning, the internal network is still up, but access to the outside world is down. When i go into the interface status page, both my wan connections show as not having an ip address. I hit the renew button, and both interfaces lease a new valid address and everything is back-up and running. However, it never seems to be able to do this automatically. My isp is zoomtown, so i don't have static ip address, it's all assigned through dhcp. However, when i was with ipcop, the address was never forcefully changed, unless i had to reboot the box, or forced an ip release, renew. Is there an option that i am missing somewhere that will automatically lease a new address, or something? im lost on this one.
The past couple days, i hooked up my ipcop box, and throughout all the pfsense connection issues, ipcop is running fine, so i don't think it's an isp issue?

Thanks for your time folks!
You fail to mention which version you are running so we cannot comment.

Please upgrade to 1.2beta1. It has newer freebsd version along with dhcp client fixes.
Try 1.2-BETA-1. A ton of DHCLIENT bugs where fixed.
It is QUITE stable.
will do that now, that for the suggestions.
And btw, great forums! Keep up the great work.
