Field introduction and operation


1. Group Settings

  • There are two groups of WAN, and each group allows you to select up to two WAN interfaces (ports).
  • Primary WAN is the main internet outbound connection of the ExpertWiFi router.
  • Secondary WAN serves as a backup or redundant internet connection.
  • To form the multi-WAN group, you can choose three Ethernet ports and one USB port.
  • By default, the two WAN ports in a group will be load balanced 1:1, but you can adjust the balance as needed.      


2. Set policy with Multi-WAN      
    There are two modes for multi-wan group:

    a. Fail over    
        When the primary WAN disconnects, the system will automatically switch to the secondary WAN. If failback is allowed, when the system detects that the primary WAN has reconnected to the internet, it will automatically switch back from the secondary WAN to the primary WAN.

  • Active Backup WAN when any primary WAN port failed.
  • Active Backup WAN when all primary WAN port failed.      


    b. Time      
        During specified time periods, the system will automatically switch to the secondary WAN.


3. Per-Port Settings      
    In this field, you can adjust detailed parameters to determine the status of each port.
