    I have the RV082, but im not sure that im using it correctly.

    Simply can the router handle dual wan connections and have a public server on one of the LAN ports. To the extent that someone on the internet can access the server from either WAN port?

    At the moment i have one port doing this, but it doesnt with two WAN's

    Please can anyone give some advice. I have been trying to sort this for 3 months !!! argh

    thanks in advance

    It works exactly as you described for me. Our mail server sits on the LAN and is available as smtp.morpheme.co.uk or smtp2.morpheme.co.uk, which resolve to the public IP addresses of the two WAN ports.

    All I did was add it to setup->forwarding and it worked straight off.

    It's going to depend on what services you have available. And what your packages are from your ISP. Dynamic vs static.

    And your original intent of why you're using dual WAN.

    Same here. Want to run a Web server by way of a dual wan. I have static ips from both ISP providers. I currently only use one of the static IPs as I see no way to put multiple Static IPs on the DNS server (as you can do with Mx records).

    Does anyone know much about the Dual Wan routers? If I just leave the DNS entry with one static IP, will a Dual Wan 'upload' the server's web pages through the fastest connection or if the web page request comes in Wan1 will the response go back through WAN1?
