I'm seeing some odd behaviour with pfSense running on an ALIX 2D2 board, that I hope someone can help me with. I'm hoping it's something obvious, but I haven't turned up anything with the search yet.
I installed a snapshot from this week and made limited configuration changes to bridge wireless (ath0) with LAN (vr0), enable the DHCP server, and add rules to allow all traffic on the LAN and wireless interfaces. I'm essentially setting it up as a wireless router, and it seems to work well as long as I have something connected to vr0. If I disconnect vr0, then a client on ath0 continues to work fine for a minute or two but then loses connectivity, though remains wirelessly associated. Reconnecting vr0 allows traffic to flow for the ath0 client again almost immediately. When the wireless client loses connectivity, it maintains its DHCP lease (and the DHCP lease webpage shows it as active but 'offline').
I'm testing this in a simple configuration, with nothing connected to WAN (though I've previously tested this with my Vigor 100) and the LAN/wireless clients trying to view the pfSense installation's web interface. I've tried 3 different ath cards with the same results, and a couple of different wireless clients.
Thanks for any assistance!
