#11780 closed defect (fixed)

Multiwan is broken for DHCP and PPPoE interfaces since /etc/ppp/ip-up was removed

Reported by: Carlos Moran <cmoran92@…> Owned by: jow
Priority: response-needed Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


It expects to obtain IP address and gateway information using uci_get_state, using /etc/config/network and /var/state/network as the sources, but since /etc/ppp/ip-up was removed, that information is missing from /var/state/network, so multiwan thinks all PPPoE and DHCP interfaces have failed and doesn't create any default route.

In response to #11772, jow said "It should be changed to use /lib/functions/ to find the interface details."

I forgot to actually include in the previous patch, use the revised version

I tried the revised patch, but unfortunately it didn't fix it for me. Multiwan reports:

multiwan: wan has failed and is currently offline.
multiwan: wan2 has failed and is currently offline.

wan is a wired ethernet dhcp interface and wan2 is a dhcp usb 3G dongle interface. I tried with and without 'option defaultroute 0' and 'option peerdns 0' options in /etc/config/network for both interfaces. dns servers are manually configured in /etc/config/multiwan.

I ran "/etc/init.d/multiwan restart" again today, and suddenly it started working, weird. I didn't even change the config. It even works after reboot. Please ignore my previous comment about the revised patch not working. For now it is working perfectly. Thanks jow!
