Wifi conection dropping



  • I have three different locations setup and running with different hardware but all suffering from the same error.

    Any wireless device that is hooked to the pfboxes will work fine for a hour then after an hour all connections to the internet will cease to work. All hardline going direct to the box work fine. is is just any device that is hooked to the wireless.

    After rebooting the wireless device it starts to work again for an hour, some times it will start doing it every 10 to 15 min.

    This is for these wireless routers:
    netgear n600
    buffalo WHR-G300N
    linksys
    belkin Play Max
    Pfsesne 2.0.1

    Also the boxes cannot grab the ipaddress from the modem unless you refresh them a few times.



  • It sounds as if you have a number of wireless routers connected to the LAN port of a number of pfSense boxes through a LAN port on the wireless routers. Is that correct?

    Please give more details on "connections to the internet will cease to work": connections from wireless clients? If so, can wireless clients access the wireless router? the pfSense box?

    @nez:

    Also the boxes cannot grab the ipaddress from the modem unless you refresh them a few times.

    Which modem? I expect the wireless boxes would be asking pfSense to give them an IP address.
