PPPoE dynamic IP - conditional WAN reconnect

    I'm on PPPoE DSL, renewing a dynamic IP every 24h on WAN. My ISP has some IP ranges that cause speed drops. I noted those ranges.

    Is it possible to configure WAN to reconnect until on desired IP range and exclude unwanted IP range ?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know of anything that will do this automatically. You'll probably have to script it in the WAN up script.

    Thanks, found a script on this forum that did it:

    if [ "$(ifconfig ppp0 | grep "inet addr:XXX")" ]
        logger "Unwanted IP" `nvram get wan_ipaddr` "received on ppp0, restarting WAN."
        service wan restart
        logger "Wanted IP" `nvram get wan_ipaddr` "received on ppp0."
