    Was this working before on 2.1.1 and broke with that snapshot? Or has it never worked for you on 2.1.1?

  • Hi Jimp

    Seeing the RRD Graphs, i lost ppp Thursday night (snapshot  6 February). I remember using 31 Jan, 4 Feb, 6 Feb and 7 Feb snaps. Now i have the stable 2.1

    My Setup:

    • MB: Asrock wolfdale1333-d667
    • Cpu: Celeron(R) CPU E1200
    • DDR2 2GB dual channel team elite.
    • Sata to CF adapter (Marvel chipset )
    • Networks -  intel dual GB 1000 Pt and huawei e392-u12 (locked to  LTE)


    • pfSense-2.1.1-PRERELEASE-4g-amd64-nanobsd_vga-upgrade-20140205-1409.img.gz (edit 2: ppp doesn't work i have to do a ln -s /usr/local/sbin/mpd.script /var/etc/mpd.script to solve the problem ).
    • pfSense-2.1.1-PRERELEASE-4g-amd64-nanobsd_vga-upgrade-20140204-2041.img.gz (need patch)
    • pfSense-2.1.1-PRERELEASE-1g-amd64-nanobsd_vga-upgrade-20140204-0232.img.gz (edit 3: Works fine without patch)
      Aside note, probably not related, i have to  Restart webConfigurator to change settings maybe a day or less before i do another Restart webConfigurator or reboot. Some time i have to do a hard reboot to boot (to refresh my huawei e392-u12, after unplug usb i have to reboot pfSense, otherwise i can't connect - stable 2.1 and i think 2.01 and 2.02). But this is for another topic.

    Renato spotted an issue with the mpd script and put in a fix, snapshots dated after this post should be OK

  • Thanks

    I see the fix,  should be OK buy i will test and give feedback.

    Can i change the 3G icon for the LTE or 4G? Its´s a cosmetic thing but… .Cell Mode is reporting wrong information, currently i have "None, No Service Mode" sometime i have a 3G mode in locked LTE Mode USB.

  • Problem solved  :). Thanks
