Post a snapshot of your gateway settings for wan dhcp. Mine looks like this:

Thx for posting, solved.

In fact, "disable Gateway monitoring" was checked on my opnsense. I hope this is not default, as i do not remember changing it.

By default its off. if you set it to on it's a good idea to set a target for the gateway monitor to ping against. As you can see in the example I have shown I am using one of Google's dns servers. I prefer to use something like that as it not only shows that my gateway is OK but that the WAN, at least as far as the Google server is also OK.
