    somebody knows something about this?



  • What version of pfSense?  Did you upgrade from an older version?  What configuration have you set for rl0?



  • I had once a similiar problem with a defective ADSL-Modem/router.
    It kept rebooting and everytime it did the interface went down and up again.



  • -What version of pfSense? 
    1.2RC3

    -Did you upgrade from an older version? 
    from 1.2RC2

    -What configuration have you set for rl0?
    Static IP



  • I have a similar problem here. Used to work for a year, and not the WAN Bridged ADSL connection is giving me a headache.

    Any ideas? 1.2RC3 version and static IP on the interface.



  • Found this too while I was doing my Dual-WAN tests. Seem to occur when unplugging and plugging the WAN ethernet cable. NO IDEA what it means though. Perhaps some developers could tell us something ;)



  • How did you get rid of it? What causes the problem. The thing used to work before.



  • At a glance it doesn't look like anything but log noise. Hot plug events on static IP interfaces don't do anything, so there isn't anything for it to be doing wrong.  :)  I'll check into it though.

    @Gotama:

    are you actually seeing a problem? If so, what specifically is it?

    My WAN access in unavailable because of the problem. Fortunately I have a backup WAN access and the Load Balancer works and directs all the traffic to the backup line. How would I get the WAN to work? Already tried a new ADSL modem, but that didn't help.
