IPv6 "gateway down" after reboot; need to release/renew WAN



  • So I have Comcast and get my WAN IPv6 address and LAN prefix via DHCPv6+PD… Nothing odd there. However, anytime I reboot my pfSense box (firmware update or otherwise), I need to manually release/renew the WAN interface when the reboot is done in order for the gateway to appear online and for IPv6 on my LAN to function again.

    I don't believe I had to do this with 2.1... but I didn't run 2.1 very long before I got a system that I had to run 2.2 on (newer hardware that had issues with FreeBSD 8).
