I've just tried the steps in the above link and it works for me at
least - ping doesn't work from m0n0 (I too get no route to host), but
I can still browse to the GUI of my ADSL modem and ping it from a PC
connected to the LAN.
I will just say in summary that it has to do with PPPoE using a
virtual interface and your modem being accessible only via the
My logs show denied pings out via sis0:
Block 18:03:45.320859 sis0 192.168.178.2 192.168.178.1 ICMP
Block 18:03:44.320016 sis0 192.168.178.2 192.168.178.1 ICMP
Block 18:03:43.319184 sis0 192.168.178.2 192.168.178.1 ICMP
whereas if I enable logging on the pass rule for the LAN interface, I
get the following (no auto default LAN -> any, I create outbound rules
Pass 18:20:58.633988 sis0 192.168.178.1, port 80 10.1.1.10, port 2782 TCP
Pass 18:20:58.632624 LAN 10.1.1.10, port 2782 192.168.178.1, port 80 TCP
Note how ipfilter is returning the physical interface for sis0 (which
is where the virtual pppoe WAN interface lives), rather than WAN.
So, try the ping from an internal machine, rather than m0n0 itself and
failing that try to browse to the modem anyway.
