Title: PPPOE over Vigor 165 dies regularly, how to debug?
Post by: skywalker007 on June 30, 2019, 12:30:40 pm
Hi *.*,

I need some advise how to debug a braking pppoe internet connection (Telekom BNG VDSL2).
Setup is as follows:
Vigor 165 as modem with pppoe passthrough.
OPNSense tags interface em1 with VLAN7.
PPPOE sit on top of em1_VLAN7.

I had the same setup running for a while with a Vigor 130 without problems.
Now with a Vigor 165, the connection breaks sometimes ones a day and sometimes after a few days.
I don't see any indicator for that. The pppoe log indicates connection attempts without success.
The Vigor modem indicates that DSL connection is up.
I don't see anything on the vigor that let's me troubleshoot any layer on top of that.
Does anyone have a similar setup? Any hints what to look for?

The procedure to get it back up and running currently is to restart both, the modem and the firewall.
thanks a lot for any hint, Till

I would try at first (if both 130 and 165 are on latest firmware) with setting VLAN7 in the Vigor and see how that does.

thanks for your input.
Why do you expect that to work better? I have always been tagging on the firewall because I use the underlying interface for routing web UI access to the modem's IP.
