We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
All had been running smoothly for years until I rebooted my pfsense box 2 days ago. It's (was) attached directly to the ONT and configured to login to PPPOE using U/N "email@example.com" and p/w "bt" and never had an issue.
Then I rebooted by pfsense box - wan down.
Sometime over the previous 19 days it would appear BT have changed something their end and I can no longer connect. I've had to put the Smart Hub 2 back in and daisy chain to pfsense via DHCP. Not really ideal for me - it should be an unnecessary hop.
I've also tried with openwrt and opnsense and neither of those machines can connect anymore either.
I note the smart hub (which admittedly I don't know very well) says its connected to vlan36 now:
ppp0:The WAN DHCPv6 Client Process has successfully been launched on Vlan 36
Which I tried tagging that vlan on the switch for my opnsense test box (router on a stick setup) by assigning vlan36 to the wan interface but to no avail.
Anyone out there know what's going on or had similar issues?
Nothing has changed with the PPPoE login, if it had all the BT hubs would stop working.
It would seem to be a bit of a coincidence if BT suddenly decided to change something at the exact moment you rebooted your pfsense box!!
I didn't say that.
I was wondering if it had changed sometime over the previous 19 days while I was already connected. I presumed extant connections wouldn't get kicked off.
I'd understood the ONT stripped any vlan tagging off. That vlan 36 normal?
