 Subject:  m0n0wall loses WAN IP address
 Date:  Sat, 7 Aug 2004 10:54:23 +0200
I'm experiencing a problem where m0n0wall intermittently loses the IP address of the WAN interface.
Often the problem can be solved by restarting the m0n0wall PC, but it can take from 5 to 60 minutes
before it gets a new IP address. My ISP gives me the usual "not supported home configuration" answer
and tells me to connect my ordinary PC directly to the modem in cause of problems. But as I run the
m0n0wall on an old Pentium II PC, I just can't see the difference. Well, well. Could this be a
configuration issue in m0n0wall? 
Currently I'm using the 1.1b15 version, but the problem was there in the 1.0 version as well. I live
in Uppsala, Sweden and my ISP is Bredbandbolaget with a VDSL connection (12 MBits down/9 MBits up). 
Any tips?
