Gateway Status - 26% Packet loss



  • Hi,

    I'm a noob to PFSense and still getting my way to use the product, we have a setup here having 2 ISP for fail over. I have a Fiber and ADSL line setup.

    My Fiber Connection is giving me a warning with a Packet loss of 26%, but how ever when I try to Ping a URL there's no packet loss whatsoever,

  • Pfft.  You don't get to play with the big boys until your apinger packet loss is >100%.

    This is a known issue that only affects some users.  Restarting apinger seems to clear it, if I remember.
