TP-Link Omada - Firewalle Purple - Constant Reconnection
I use the Firewall Purple in Brigde Mode with a TP-Link ER605 router. I have configured four VLANs (see screenshot), which are also monitored correctly.
However, I have now noticed in the router log that the Firewalla box is connected to and disconnected from the individual VLANs nearly every minute ( other screenshot)
I cannot imagine that this is normal.
Does anyone have a tip on where this behaviour comes from and how it could be better?
well, it is my first firewalla product, so I would assume everything works as it should on the side of firewalla.
I can see the traffic from all four VLAN and Ad Blocking, Parental Control etc. is working.
For me it looks like my router accepts the IP connection of bridge 1, after some minutes bridge 1 is disconnected and bridge 2 ist connected. After some minutes bridge 2 is disconnected and bridge 3 is connected and so on and so forth...
Also my router only shows one Firewalla IP in the device manager at a time.
Whats should be the default behavior? Should all four bridge IPs be displayed as connected at the same time?
When bridging, Firewalla is fairly transparent. It only grabs one IP to communicate, other than that, on each VLAN there is no IP. Meaning, you are not going to see firewalla grabbing IP from each VLAN
If everything is operational, likely your router UI may be either buggy, or need to be tuned to reflect waht's going on
