How to configure 4G as fallback WAN connection?

    I was trying to configure an ASUS N18U running AdvancedTomato 3.4-140 to use a 4G connection as a fallback to the existing cable-based WAN connection (i.e. 4G should be started automatically if DSL fails) but couldn’t find such an option. Does such an option not exist, or am I looking in the wrong places?

    Adwanced/vlan You need to configure extra vlan, vlan 3 without assigning and tagging ports in the last column, enable wan2, then in basic tab you can enable wan 2 and set up 3g or lte connection and set it to failower = 0

    Tiny problem: the Huawei LTE USB Stick insists on 192.168.1.1 as its IP address. I have already set up the router to use that subnet, however. Is there a way to change the stick's IP address, or do I have to redo the router setup?

    change router IP address
    and it's best to change the hilink firmware to a non-hilink if you have a huawei modem
    e3131, e3372 etc
    in hilink modems the html pages do not get used sometimes (the error of the broadcom proc.)
