Stge0 2 link states coalesced



  • Brand new install. only basic made no changes.
    It really made my network FLY !!!
    Past few mornings I wake up to limited network connection and when looking at PFsense routher
    I see stge0 2 link states coalesced . and have to reboot PFsense.

    Do I need to make changes  to setup ?
    I Love the way it runs..

  • that means it lost and regained link very quickly, too quickly for it to log down and up. Probably a NIC or driver issue, or possibly an issue with a cable or switch port it's plugged into. Assuming you're on 2.1.5, 2.2 probably would behave better if it's a driver issue since that's a relatively new driver (or was at the time of the base OS in 2.1x versions).



  • new install
