Alarm canceled: WAN(x.x.xx.x) *** down ***

  • i noticed today quite a bit of latency getting out to internet at times and noticed this frequent item in the pfsense system logs:

    "apinger: alarm canceled: WAN(x.x.xx.x) *** down ***"

    i'm running the following version:

    2.0.3p1-RELEASE (i386) built on Fri Jun 28 16:24:36 EDT 2013
    FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE-p13

    its a netgate atom embedded fw device that's been running ok for a almost a month since i purchased it.

    is this log message an issue due to the netgate device or my cable modem/company side ?


  • Check the latency settings to be sure they are not too low.  But could really and actually be down.  Thats what the alarm is for.
