Pfsense Wan interface disconnected
« on: December 07, 2017, 02:52:20 am »
Hello All,

I need your help regarding pfsense issue, i'm using pfsense version 2.3.4.
This pfsense work as firewall / router at my shop.
I configure my wan interface as static ip. Quite happen, sometimes my lan internet suddenly disconnect.
Try ping any internet ip (example 8.8.8.8) from pfsense ping, but request time out.
As a result i need to manually disable and enable wan interface, then only my internet is working.
Its so troublesome when we using internet, then suddenly my internet disconnect.
When i review my internet from isp, if my isp not stable got 2 or 3 request time out, then my pfsense wan will totally disconnect.
Is there any function / command in pfsense to refresh the wan connection? Auto connect maybe?

Thanks

What type of WAN connection?  I bet the provider is disconnecting you because you're using an address they didn't provide.  Unless you have been assigned a static IP, you shouldn't be using a static config.
