Lost contact with DSL Modem



  • I don't know what is going on here.  For the longest time I have been able to access my DSL modem from within my LAN.  Something has changed and now I am not able to. I can plug directly into the modem, feed a browser the IP and it works.  But it's not working from within the LAN.

    I get some blocking in the firewall:

    Act|Time|If|Source|Destination|Proto
    block|Jul 12 11:34:43|MODEMACCESS|fe80::2276:ff:fe0d:cfcc|ff02::1|ICMP6
    pass|Jul 12 11:34:29|MODEMACCESS|10.0.0.1|224.0.0.1|IGMP

    If I try to make an "Easy Rule: pass this traffic" by clicking on the green icon in the "Destination" column for any IPv6 line item I get the following notification/page:

    Status : EasyRule

    This is the Easy Rule status page, mainly used to display errors when adding rules. If you are seeing this, there apparently was not an error, and you navigated to the page directly without telling it what to do.

    This page is meant to be called from the block/pass buttons on the Firewall Logs page, Status > System Logs, Firewall Tab.

    and no rule is made.

    I don't believe we were using IP6 on this network before so that could be "what's changed".

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.



  • Here are some system log entries that might show part of the problem (?):

    Jul 12 13:36:26 kernel: arp: 10.0.0.1 moved from 20:76:00:0d:cf:cc to 88:e0:f3:cf:0e:72 on xl0
    Jul 12 13:12:32 kernel: arp: 10.0.0.1 moved from 20:76:00:0d:cf:cc to 88:e0:f3:cf:0e:72 on xl0
    Jul 12 12:48:43 kernel: arp: 10.0.0.1 moved from 20:76:00:0d:cf:cc to 88:e0:f3:cf:0e:72 on xl0

    Jul 12 11:43:22 kernel: xl0: transmission error: 90

    10.0.0.1 is the modem access IP.
