Em0 is down



  • I have two connection em0 and pppoe0 ,below is the welcome screen on my pfsence

    WAN (wan)                 -> em0        -> x.x.x.x
     LAN (lan)                 -> fxp0       -> 10.0.0.1
     10WAN (opt1)              -> pppoe0     -> x.x.x.x (PPPoE)

    but Dash board says that WAN CONNECTION IS DOWN

    Interface shows that no carrier available

    Status: Interfaces

  • That means it's not plugged into anything, or not plugged in with the right kind of cable (xover or not), or bad cable. Doesn't have link.
