PPPoE connection disconnects consistently
ISP uses VLAN 500 to provide VDSL2 connectivity through a Huawei HG655A BTU. VLAN tagging is done on a separate Mikrotik RB250GS switch to pass a the VLAN500 towards the pfsense box. pfSense managed to dial perfectly fine upon installation. However after a reboot, PPPoE connection drops consistently every 8 minutes. I have tried to use both 1.2.3 and 2.0 but the results were same. According to the sys logs, it shows that the ISP is initiating a reset on my connection at that point of time.
Using a simple home router (DLINK 615) to dial PPPoE through this link did not disconnect for days.

will furnish with a screenshot since the VM is disabled at the moment. However what I have configured on the WAN interface is :-
1. Type - PPPoE
2. Username - username@ISP
3. Password - password
4. Idle Time - blank
Advanced PPP configuration remains all at default.
As mentioned earlier VLAN tagging is done on the RB250GS switch so pfSense is not configured for VLAN500, therefore it is a direct PPPoE dial up from pfSense.
