How to config 2 WAN for Gaming



  • Hi Guys,

    I have the idea of using two fiber for the my Gaming, but I don't know how to do config it. Please help me.
    WAN 1: 1000 Mbps/1000Mbps
    WAN 2: 45 Mbps/45Mbps

    And IP address: 192.168.1.1 (Gateway Groups)

    How to configure Traffic Shaper to access the internet, youtube is computer will use WAN 1, and when play game will use WAN 2

    Thanks very much



  • How to block all through WAN1, except port 80 and 443. Please help me  :'(



  • The problem you have here is that a lot of games use Port 80/443 to launch from before connecting on the gaming ports.  Steam / BF / CoD , etc use a client first then will launch the game.  Some anti-cheats will see you switch IP's and kill the session.

    To answer your question however - you will need to make a firewall rule on the LAN side saying any traffic on port 80/443 go out WAN1 .  You would put that above the default ANY / ANY rule or disable the default rule and make a rule that says from Any to Any go out WAN2 for the gateway.  As long as the 1st rule is above that one you will have the traffic split.

    I would highly suggest testing it before putting it into production to see how it affects various services.



  • You'd probably want to find out the DNS names of Google/Youtube, and specify an alias with those as a source to set the gateway for that traffic.  Have those rules first on your LAN interface and they will get directed out the proper WAN connection.

    Thank sideout and autotalon very much, this design has not been done. Because a lot of games use Port 80/443 to launch from before connecting on the gaming ports. I am intending to buy a pfsense router to find the difference between a pfsense router and a computer using pfsense software.
