    Hi there

    I have just received my RV082 and i am trying to set it up for failover. I am having a problem getting the router to automatically assign an ip address to the WAN2 port.
    It will assign an IP to the WAN1 port with no probs. I thought it may have been a problem with the modems so i swapped them over and the ADSL that was failing to get an IP in WAN2 is now getting one and the Cable in WAN2 is now not getting one.

    Any ideas?

    What version of firmware is running on your RV082. If you're not using the latest, namely 1.1.5, you should upgrade your firmware.

    I think this is a bug but don't worry the failover works very well and fast.
    I've got TELUS ADSL and SHAW Cable and I tested the auto failover and it's really fast. It seems though when your primary port is active it doesn't show the IP address of the failover port for some reason.

    Once I got the SHAW address I plugged in the TELUS (Primary) connection. I then pinged the SHAW address and it was alive.

    I'm using firmware 1.1.5

    I've found with this firmware the router has been very stable. I have 35 in house users and about 20 outside users connecting to CITRIX with no problems.

    I have just set up my RV082. I want to set up load sharing between my Telus and Shaw broadband connections.

    My Shaw connection (fixed IP) works fine in either port.

    However webrowsing via just the Telus connection (dynamic IP) is so slow it is vertually dead. It also seems to pull down the Shaw connection. The Telus connection works fine if I plug a computer straight into the modem. When it is plugged into the RV082 it picks up an IP address from telus.

    Last year I paid a IT guy to set up a load balanced configuration. He sold me a Nexland ISB Pro load balanced router. He couldn't get that to work either. The Shaw connection was fine but similarly the Telus connection wouldn't function. After a few failed attempts and a number of unkept appointments I didn't hear from the IT guy again!

    This is getting frustrating and expensive.

    It looks like a Telus problem but they won't support router issues. All they will do is set the Mac Address.

    Please... any suggestions.
