Re: How to Downgrade from 4.7 to 4.6

Problem is the same box works fine at another location, same provider.
Only dif is static ip, and commercial grade service, runs fine on dhcp
and residential service. I have 4.7 running at home and another location
just fine. Even waited a few months till I was comfortable with new
syntax for pf, and see if any reported any big bugs I may try a snapshot
after I back up the present drive. I am at a loss what it is.

Considering that 4.7 isn't known to have major, show-stopper bugs in PF
like you experience, you may want to consider that there is a bug in
some other part of the system like the ethernet driver or some such.

If you can try 4.8 snapshots first, and perhaps post your tests,
results, and dmesg to the list, then someone can help you narrow down
what the actual problem is.
