RV082: WAN2 dies when WAN1 plugged in

    I'm trying to set up Smartlink backup on my RV082. Current settings are WAN2 primary (PPPoE), WAN1 backup. WAN1 gets its IP address from our Cisco router, which is connected to our T1.

    Problem is, when I plug in WAN1, WAN2 cuts out. On the status screen, WAN2 shows IP 0.0.0.0, but WAN1 works fine. If WAN2 is primary, it should switch over to WAN1, right? And why does it disconnect?

    I'm not sure where to go with this one. Any troubleshooting recommendations?

    I'm running FW 1.1.6.14.

    Thanks,
    Joseph

    If your WAN1 and WAN2 are both connected to the same router and are on the same subnet, when WAN1 comes up it will drop WAN2 and Vise Versa. Try Subnetting the point to points to the WAN1 and WAN2.

    Ie: if WAN1 is on 10.10.10.1 and wan 2 is one 10.10.10.100. You will experience that problem. If you Change the subnet to 10.10.11.100 or if you put it within a proper subet. 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.192 and 10.10.11.100 on 255.255.255.192. It should work.

    I am using the 10.x.x.x as an example. If you need help subenting let me know. I can help you with the Cisco routes as well.
