Ok! It looks like it took about roughly three months for this problem to rear it’s ugly head again. It stopped working this afternoon after having worked first thing in the morning when I powered on the IPfire router. About four hours later of the router being on the whole time, I go to check a web page and nothing loads. I’m currently connected to the Internet with the WAN ethernet cable directly into my desktop PC, so I know the connection does work. IPfire is updated to the most current version 2.25 CU 157.
I’ve looked at /var/log/messages and have not found anything obvious the way it was last time, but I’m admittedly not an expert with this. Interestingly enough, the problem displays itself differently than last time when I first started this thread here. When I log into the IPfire web admin page, it shows red is connected, but I cannot access anything on the internet through the router. Where as it used to show red not being able to connect.
I’m not very familiar with this forum in how it works and how many lines of code are expected to be posted. I’m getting a error message of too many characters in my post when I add the pieces of messages log. I’ll post those logs in separate posts.
