RV082 + Dual WAN = No more servers?

    Hi all,

    I have been using my RV082 with one WAN connection with great success for some time now. Definitely the best router Linksys has their name on.

    Recently, I got a second WAN connection (auto balance mode), and now I'm having trouble with some server programs I was running fine before. One example is my FTP server:

    After upgrading to the second WAN connection, people can still connect (on my original IP), and then after that they get varied results. Sometimes they can log on and browse folders, sometimes the connection times out, and everything in between.

    My *guess* is that the router is forwarding the incoming request on wan1:21 and then "load balancing" and replying on wan2, depending on how the rv decides to do it. I know the balancing options arent very adjustable, but does anyone have an idea how i can solve this problem? Do you think my guess is right?

    Disabling wan2 solves the problem instantly.
