Big problem with DHCP lease. Help please !



  • I have a problem of duration of DHCP leases in pfSense v 2.0.3-release.

    Indeed, after obtaining an IP address using DHCP, the device loses it after a few minutes and never seem to get a new address.

    My DHCP range is very wide: more than 100 addresses to 10 devices.

    The lease term is default: 2 hours.

    To rectify the situation I am forced to restart the DHCP service.

    Could you please help me?

    Sound like a device problem: what sort of device - phone? tablet? PC runinig …?\

    What does the pfSense DHCP log say around the time a device "loses" its allocated IP address? What does the corresponding device log report?
