Multi WAN possible?

    Hello,

    I have an Asus RT-N18U router with Shibby 140 Multi WAN firmware working fine.
    The IP address of my router is 192.168.1.1 and the WAN connection is static (connected to my DSL modem's IP 10.0.0.138).

    I have another gateway in my LAN which I could use as WAN2, if my DSL modem/line will have a problem.
    But the IP address of that gateway is 192.168.1.101. So it is in my LAN. Is it possible to use an IP address in my LAN as WAN2?
    Does anyone know how to configure that?

    Nobody knows, if Multi WAN is possible in my case?
    Shouldn't be that hard, cause the 2nd Gateway is accessible directly in my LAN. Or is exactly that the problem?

    Is this so hard to answer?

    No one has tested such a case,
    You have to experiment yourself , in adwanced tab you need to create a new vlan, assign the appropriate port and name it wan3, etc.

    Why not change your internal IP range to 192.168.2.1 - 192.168.2.255 and leave the two wan addresses as is?

    That won‘t help, because I need also to access the Gateway 192.168.1.101 directly from some devices in my LAN.

    Let me explain it completely.
    My internal LAN IP range is 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.255.
    The IP address of my main router is 192.168.1.1 (WAN port connected to DSL modem 1 (IP 10.0.0.138)).
    Then I have 7 additional Gateways in my LAN:
    Gateway 1 (IP 192.168.1.101) (WAN port connected to DSL modem 2 (IP 10.0.0.138).
    Gateway 2 (IP 192.168.1.102) (WAN port connected to DSL modem 3 (IP 10.0.0.138).
    Gateway 3 (IP 192.168.1.103) (WAN port connected to DSL modem 4 (IP 10.0.0.138).
    Gateway 4 (IP 192.168.1.104) (WAN port connected to DSL modem 5 (IP 10.0.0.138).
    Gateway 5 (IP 192.168.1.105) (WAN port connected to DSL modem 6 (IP 10.0.0.138).
    Gateway 6 (IP 192.168.1.106) (WAN port connected to DSL modem 7 (IP 10.0.0.138).
    Gateway 7 (IP 192.168.1.107) (WAN port connected to DSL modem 8 (IP 10.0.0.138).

    The most clients inside my LAN are using 192.168.1.1 to access the internet but there are also some specific clients which use one of the 7 additional Gateways (to have an dedicated internet connection and WAN IP).
    That's wokring very fine.

    But currently the modem of the main router 192.168.1.1 is having some troubles from time to time. So I thought if I could use Multi-WAN to get an automatic failover, cause I already have other Gateways inside my LAN. But I think the problem for Multi-WAN is exactly that the Gateways are inside my LAN, right?
    Or is there any solution how I could access my Gateways as it is and also use Multi-WAN failover on the main router?
