network failing about every 24 hours


This is my first post here so here we go

I have a VM (running in Bhyve on freenas) and in that VM is Debian 8. I made this VM specially for sync operations, in this case Resilio sync (formerly known as BTsync). Now after i moved, i have imense problems with keeping it connected to the internet. My modem/router is set to IPV6 and im guessing the problem lies there. i can't set it to IPV4 just yet because the order still is going through or my moving. Internet itself works fine but in this VM i need to start the dhclient every so often to make sure its connected again. i don't know why but the IPV4 address vanishes from ifconfig and after running dhclient, its back and everything works again.

A probable fix would be tos et it static but i rather not. I have tried to disable IPV6 in the VM through the network manager but somehow that never gets put through. when i check ifconfig, its still there even though its disabled.

Hopefully in a few days i get my IPV4 connection and then its probably solving this as well but for the main time i would like a option that is more stable then putting in commands every 24 hours and checking if its still online.

I made some screens hots bit it seems like i can't post them here?

Anyway, thanks for reading and perhaps helping me out .

I stayed up late today and the internet fail happens over the whole network and is around 2:50 AM ... so that points me to my router/modem of my ISP? what is that about?

Hi Sander,

Just a suggestion - This might best be addressed to the BSD forum.

Cheers !
