Wan is going up and down



  • Dear All,

    I have serious issue with two pfsense boxes 2.1.5 running squid.

    The Wan card is flapping randomly for less than 3 minutes.

    Sometimes it happens 3 times a day.

    Below the log from dmesg.

    re0: <realtek 8111="" 8168="" b="" c="" cp="" d="" dp="" e="" f="" pcie="" gigabit="" ethernet="">port 0x9000-0x90ff mem 0xd3010000-0xd3010fff,0xd3000000-0xd300ffff irq 17 at device 0.0 on pci2

    Can you please advise if anyone faces the same ?

    Thanks



  • Which NIC is in each of these boxes? I had a similar issue when I was using a newer Mini-ITX board with an onboard Realtek 8111 series NIC. I added an extra PCI-express NIC to take the place of the onboard NIC and all the problems went away.
