Dual-Wan, accessing both modem's GUI

  • Evening' ladies and gents

    I have two identical modems that i am load balancing. Both are bridged, and the local IP cannot be changed. The GUI runs @ on both modems. I am able to access one of the modem's by using a rule:

    Int LAN
    Source LAN net
    Dest single host
    (advanced) gateway (WAN1)

    If i manually switch the gateway setting to WAN2, i can then access the other modem. What is a feasible option to be able to access both of them simultaneously? Im figuring some sort of NAT rule, or using virtual IP's some how. Any advice would be appreciated.

    any input here?

    What about a nat redirection to the 2nd interface? If something like that would work, how would it? :P

  • Would a NAT rule work?
    Int LAN, Source = *, destination =, NAT IP =
    Int LAN, Source = *, destination =, NAT IP =

    Then create the associated rules where you set the gateway for both? Substitute 10.0.0.* with whatever you use for your LAN network.

  • I could see how this could be part of what's going to need to happen, but how does it know which interface to reach?

  • I'm sorry, I totally skipped over the read about setting the rules for each gateway.

    So I can basically choose any ip in my LAN subnet, I.e and .21 and nat them to, and set a rule for the destination of .20 to point at gateway wan1 and .21 to wan2?

    What interface am I applying the rules to?

  • I actually have no idea if it works like I thought it might. I'd need to test it, but for that I would somehow need to replicate your setup.
