Description

Request:
If pfSense detects an interface is down (plugged in but has no IP), I would like for it to automatically try to "renew" the IP every 1 minute (or 5 or whatever).

Reason:
For some reason, every time I update one of my pfSense boxes, it will reboot but won't pull a WAN IP afterward. It just stays in the "Down" status forever until someone logs in and clicks the "Renew" button on the Status > Interfaces page. If pfSense would automatically renew its down interfaces, no manual intervention would be necessary, and this remote site would come back online by itself. This would be SUPER helpful for making the firewall more robust.
