pfSense – PPPoE disconnects requiring reboot

Recently I am having some problem with my pfSense box and the router in bridge mode. This topic describe very well my problem


Currently I don’t have any solution to solve the problem. A possible workaround may be leave to the router the management of ¬†pppoe connection and set pfSense WAN with a static IP. To avoid the double NAT problem I have put my pfSense WAN IP on the DMZ of the router.
