Issue With Bridged CM And pfSense FW
My Netgate SG-2220 FW running pfSense gets its public IP from a bridged Arris TG1682. Logs suggest connectivity is lost mostly in the early morning hours around the time the IP address is renewed. The only way I can restore connectivity is to release and renew the public IP. I've made some incremental tweaks to the WAN DHCP client configuration but so far haven't hit the sweet spot.
For those who've bridged a Cox modem and are using your own firewall, what settings did you have to tweak to make your setup reliable, e.g. add a host name, IP alias or change DHCP protocol timings?
