Hi there!

I have kernel 3.10.7 running and setup a bridge. I'm running stable (mostly). my setup is as following

Internet
|
wlan0
| (masqerading)
br0
(eth0, tap0).

eth0 has no ip address, tap0 has no ip address, br0 has a 192.168.x.x/24 address assigned.

eth0 is my external network card and tap0 is used for my qemu machines. I attach my beaglebone black via network cable to eth0. dhcpd is listening on br0 to give IP address to the qemu machines and the beaglebone.

My problem is, that if the beaglebone is off and get switched on again, the network interface eth0 seems not (always) work correctly. I see DHCP Request on my /var/log/messages and the IP of it, but if i want to ping that device, i can not reach it. It has worked some time ago, but i have no clue what happened to disrupt it.

Any ideas?

Ok, and how you make it work again? Eth0 restart? DHCPD restart? Unplugging cable? Full reboot? Maybe something else?

You might want to set sniffer on eth0 and look at DHCP traffic. Does it actually send any offers? Right now might be something related to dhcpd itself, it's config file, driver module, or even bad weather on the Moon. Need more info.
Also, have you tried to reboot your qemu? (using reboot rather than killing it and starting again with brand-new-random-mac)

So here is the log. I attached the beaglebone via usb and the direct cable from the two ethernet devices.

I digged al little bit and what i need to get it running is delete tap0, br0 and bind dhcpd directly to eth0.

That is of course no "solution". I get a different output in this configuration:

Code:
Dec  9 18:05:35 machariel dhcpd: DHCPDISCOVER from 90:59:af:5c:1a:cf (beaglebone) via eth0
Dec  9 18:05:36 machariel dhcpd: DHCPOFFER on 192.168.176.20 to 90:59:af:5c:1a:cf (beaglebone) via eth0
Dec  9 18:05:36 machariel dhcpd: DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.176.20 (192.168.176.1) from 90:59:af:5c:1a:cf (beaglebone) via eth0
Dec  9 18:05:36 machariel dhcpd: DHCPACK on 192.168.176.20 to 90:59:af:5c:1a:cf (beaglebone) via eth0


The Request and the Ack were missing in the upper log, but what could be the reason?

It's not really an answer to my question, but at least it provides some new info. In the original configuration with tap and eth enslaved by bridge, does restarting any of following services allow reconnect?
* dhcpd0
* net.br0
* net.eth0

Also, show us /etc/conf.d/net and your dhcpd config. You can use grep -v '^#\^$' <filename> to produce human-readable version of it.

This is my /etc/conf.d/net

Code:
modules="wpa_supplicant"

# wlan0
config_wlan0="192.168.178.16/24"
routes_wlan0="default via 192.168.178.1"
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext -c/etc/wpa-home.conf"

# tap0
tuntap_tap0="tap"
config_tap0="null"
tunctl_tap0="-t tap0 -u me"

# eth0
config_eth0="null"

# br0
config_br0="192.168.176.1/24"
bridge_br0="eth0 tap0"

depend_br0() {
    need net.eth0
    need net.tap0
}


Restarting of the 3 services/devices did restart the 3 devices, sshd, dhcpd, but it did not allow to get an dhcpack.

I did now deactivate the bridge and let dhcpd listen on both devices, eth0 and tap0 and a second subnet description to dhcpd.conf and a second masqerading firewall rule. It seems now working again but i cant understand why the bridge setup did only work for the qemu machines and not for the eth0 connected devices.
