Yep, I have the same problem,
I replayed here: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=54782.0
I reinstalled from Oct 14 Live CD and apply saved config. Everything is fine.
I'll wait for a few updates to pass under the bridge before jumping for one.
Manually applied the Oct 15 & 16 commits to Oct 14 Live CD installation and works fine.
Was there any binary updates or other changes between the 14th - 17th?
same issue with brand new installation haniging on "…. wan ..."
I have a workaround if you have a backup xml file:
1. ctr + C to get to the single user shell
2. run /etc/rc.initial.setlanip
3. set the LAN to an IP that you can reach... skip the dhcpd settings ...
4. connect a computer to the LAN
5. go to webconfigurator "diagnostics->backup/restore"
6. restore from your xml
7. reboot the firewall
When I encountered the issue, for some reason I had the distinct impression it was hanging @ getting a WAN dhcp address. Possibly why using an existing config avoids the issue?
Wasnt there some update or something for the dhcp daemon around 10-16?
