all the pfsense nanobsd v2+ have one pppoe reconnection issue related to the newer mpd being used and i desperately need a fix for it, this has been talked over and over again and again but most of the ppl out there dont have this issue but there r a few including me who face this.
mpd, pppoe etc logs have been provided but hasn't yet yielded anything and mostly the culprit is mpd itself coz the older pfsense and older mpd used to work flawless and used to reconnect perfectly even with cable unplug or isp router fail etc.
the issue is as follows:
on pfsense reboot, pppoe connects fine and everything working. once u unplug the cable between the isp router and pfsense then connection drops but as soon as replug it, it resumes fine, myb because the isp modem still remains in its configured state. now if u reset or switch off the isp modem then again pppoe connection drops but as soon as the isp modem is up again, pppoe goes in a infinite reconnection loop and wont reconnect till u reboot pfsense, what i think is when the isp modem is rebooted, it keeps its network port is some sort of state which just keeps pppoe in the reconnection loop or there is some if and else in mpd coding which detects different states and accordingly attempts a reconenct which while rebooting is different and while reconnection is different.
more ppl as me might almost contribute to this but bear in mind, the logs dont yield much so some more advanced debug method is required, i can provide access to my PC and box using dialup connection which some1 can login into it and try to see what happens behind the scene with mpd when such a scenario is recreated
