Assigning WAN port to LAN ports of E3000

    Hi guys! One of my Linksys E3000's WAN Port (Internet port) started acting up and now the WAN port no longer works. Is there a way for me to assign the WAN port to one of the LAN ports so I could connect it again to one of my modems?

    It's running Toastman's tomato-E3000USB-NVRAM60K-1.28.0503.6MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N-VLAN-VPN-NOCAT right now and I can't find that option (if any in the settings).

    If it's possible. Will someone please be kind enough to give me a "Setting up WAN port to any of the LAN ports for the Dummy" step by step instructions?

    I would appreciate it. Thanks!

    I haven't done it but the procedure is to modify the vlan port nvram variables

    nvram find vlan
    vlan1ports=1 2 3 4 8*
    vlan2ports=0 8
    Port 8 will be the internal connection to the 5 port switch, port 0 currently the wan port. I don't remember what the star means, the other lan ports may not have same case numbers!

    so something like

    nvram set vlan1ports="2 3 4 8*"
    nvram set vlan2ports="0 1 8"
    nvram commit
    and then reboot, might make both port 0 and 1 wan ports..

    You also should be able to do this from the webif. In the VLAN section, you'll see your port mappings, the LAN ports should all be ticked in the same vlan, untick whichever one of the LAN ports you want to be the new WAN port and move it into the WAN port vlan mapping, save that and should be good to go.

    I finally got it to work! Sometimes the answer is right in front of our noses, we just don't have to over-complicate things.

    Thank you for your inputs. Much appreciated! :)
