I use a cable modem for internet access in my home and ipfire for home use. Since release 139 and now in 141, whenever there is a power outage, the system does not automatically connect, not receiving an IP from the internet provider. The modem is in bridge mode. The dynamic IP is provided by the internet provider.
I need the system, when restarting automatically, to also connect automatically, even if the modem takes a while. Normally, it works on boot and reconnect automatically, but this time it just show “connecting…”. The problem is that the provider’s modem takes a longer time to start and provide the dynamic IP. Ipfire boots before the modem. So, what can I do on ipfire to resolve the issue? If I’m out, I have no access until I get home. When I get home, I have to force the reconnection by applying a Mac Address and obtaining the Reconnect button.
I see Core 139 won't connect internet but I didn’t see solution there.
I am grateful for the help. Thank you.
