    I have RV042 with two WAN connections and load balansing, and skype is constantly switching between WANs, even in the middle of a call. How to avoid this? I want skype to connect using WAN1 for examlpe.

    Use Protocol Binding. Find the ports used and nail them to WAN1. I'm doing this with Vonage devices and it works fine.

    Just to be clear - it's most likely not Skype switching from the one to the other, it's you load balancing software/firmware, so fix in there.

    Thank you pablito, Protocol Binding did the trick.
    HennieM - It's my mistake(my english is bad), skype is not switching between WANs, skype is being switched by the router.

    just for your information, if you have the same problem with any SSL connections it is advised you protocol bind the HTTPS port (443) as well.

    Already done. Secure websites don’t like different IPs.
    Thanks Toxic.
