A packet capture does not show any packets (not a single one) on the interface while the log shows all the attempts and timeouts.
Interesting! Packet capture on vr2? or pppoe0?

Its a capture on PPPoE1. PPPoE0 is is the name for an old Vlan. Actually I deleted PPPoE0 a while ago. PPPoE1 did remain and is assigned to vr2.
Actually I've now deleted the interface (vr2) and the PPP  and recreated/assigned vr2 to new PPPoE type interface (now named PPPoE0), but no change; after a longer disconnect the PPPoE interface won't reconnect.

I wonder if ppp is stuck waiting (possibly erroneously) for a

. This is part of a bigger sequence of events logged when I disconnected my ppp link and then reconnected it:

I wonder if the empty packet capture indicates ppp was waiting for the other end to "speak" and the other end was waiting for pfSense ppp to speak. The extract from my log suggests to me that my ISP spoke before my pfsense ppp did.
