I use the m0n0wall since more than a year without any problem, but changed 2 days ago the configuration to bridge 2 of the 3 networkadapter. Since then I get trouble: random disconnects on WAN-Port.

M0n0wall Version is 1.33 (built on Wed Mar 16 12:01:42 CET 2011) running on the ALIX platform from pc engines (Z├╝rich).

WAN Port is DHCP (IP from ISP)
LAN Port just
3rd Port Bridged to LAN

The result is a complete dc of my network as you can see above.

I remember that bridges can be painfull in wrong configuration. But in this case the bridged IP-Range is greyed out and the function on board of m0n0wall. Before I changed into bridgemode the problem was not there and I used on the 3rd LAN-Port

I allready diconnected all additional bridges, switches (exept one swicth) to find out where the problem comes from.

Any idea?

PS: I found now in the configuration that I had still "Enable syslog'ing to remote syslog server" into the network. Maybe this was the reason? I changed it now and will check...

yes, looks like this was the reason - no dc anymore untill now.

The IP for the syslog was set before i changed the port to bridge and was still active. The IP did'nt exist anymore and caused the crashes (overflows?).
