DHCP and DNS / Issues with DNS Resolver / SNMP services going down
« on: March 16, 2018, 08:15:25 am »
I am relatively new to pfsense and everything for the most part has been running smooth. About the same tame every day I had issues with DNS Resolver and SNMP services going down and I would manually have to restart them. I then installed WatchDog and it has been doing a good job of bringing them up but I would like to try to get to the bottom of WHY they are going down. I have attached a picture of what the log shows.

Trying to install pfsense 2.4.2 AMD 64 and the installer reboots at the following screen (see attached screen shot). So far I have updated the BIOS on the machine and also tried to install via thumb drive with no success. I've reset the bios to default and I am starting to run out of ideas here so ANY help is appreciated. This is my 1st attempt at installing pfsense and so far it has not been pleasant. System specs as follows:

AMD A6 360 Processor
AAHD2 -HY (holly) motherboard
8 gigs DDR3 Ram

Will this work ?

Hardware / Newbie to pfsence and need advice

Here is my current setup and the issue I am currently having. I have a Netgear R7000 router flashed with DD-WRT on it and run PIA VPN. When I connect through the VPN on the router I see max speeds of 30Mbps and when disconnected from the VPN I see speeds of 100Mbp+. After doing some reading online it seems as though my router is not powerful enough to process the VPN hence the bottleneck in my speeds. I would like to ask some people on here for opinions as I do not have much knowledge with VPN's and how taxing it is or isn't on the router side of things. My goal ultimately when I got the R7000 was to have ALL my devices (wired and wireless) connect directly through the VPN, thus eliminating individual VPN client based apps on all the devices. If I could I would like to find a low cost solution to my issue. If anyone has suggestions I am all ears. At this point I figure here are my options:

1. Buy a pfsense preconfigured machine with built in Wi-Fi and ditch the R7000
2. Buy a pfsense preconfigured machine and still use the R7000 as an AP for all wireless devices.
3. Build or buy something and configure it myself.

I would really like to keep the price down and if there is already a machine I can buy (older thin client) or something similar again I am all ears. Looking for ideas/feedback/suggestions to my problem.

Thanks and I appreciate everyone's time if you are reading this.
