Everything working ok on BT Infinity, but PPPoE says it's offline?
« on: September 12, 2017, 09:10:05 am »
Hi,

bit of a strange one - I've got my v2.3.4 system up & running for BT Infinity (fibre) here in the UK, configured WAN to PPPoE and am using bthomehub@btbroadband.com / bt as the PPPoE login credentials.  My WAN port is connecting to a BT OpenReach VDSL modem for our FTTC connection.

Everything is working fine - great speed too, except the "Gateways" section of my Dashboard in pfSense shows WAN_PPPOE with a Status of Offline in red.  Also I see two different IPs for WAN and PPPoE - is that expected?  Screenshot attached.

probably something I've done wrong, or not yet done.

Thanks in advance,

Steve

172.16.15.38 lies in rfc1918 address space it wouldn't be routable on the internet.

Click on the spanner under gateways and display both, guessing you have a "Rogue" monitor IP thats got in there somewhere, delete it if it shows.

Also check System -> Routing -> Gateways -> Edit

Thinking about it, maybe someone has configured 172.16.15.38 on the OpenReach VDSL modem and pfSense has piclked up on it, you can get stats off some of them.
