The advice here looks promising:
- if changes are made to the PPPoE
interface under Assign-PPPs, these are not reflected immediately
(obvious when checking or not "Configure a NULL Service name"), PPPoE
daemon still tries to establish connexion with old settings. A way to
reset PPPoE daemon seems to set the interface the PPPoE connexion was
assigned to to None; sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't (giving
messages like "PPPoE: can't connect ":"->"mpd17340-0" and
"[3b]:"->"left": No such file or directory" in logs)
That thread suggests that pfSense may be getting confused with old
PPPoE configurations. Does this trick of setting the WAN to 'None' and
then setting it to DHCP work for you?
