Problems with Dual WAN & static IP
saboteur last edited by
When I setup dual WAN with both WAN interfaces using DHCP, I can get outbound load balancing to work fine. But as soon as I change one of the interfaces to a static IP and add the gateway under the Gateways tab of Routing, it stops working. I also notice that I cannot remove a gateway from the Gateways tab.
I am using 2.0-AA built on March 2
I searched for related issues and didn't find any but if this is a repost I'm sorry for wasting your time.

I've been having a similar issue but it occurs even when trying to use a single WAN. If the WAN uses dhcp everything works great.
However, when I setup static and setup the same gateway that was assigned by dhcp no more traffic gets through. I tried:
-setting the WAN ip to the one given by dhcp and others I know are available
-creating a new gateway from the WAN interface setup page
-specifying the gateway as default
-assigning the gateway to the dns servers (dropdown next to boxes for dns ip's)
-using manual outbound NAT
Once I stopped using dhcp the status->gateway page would always show the gateway as offline. I've been meaning to download a new snapshot and try again but haven't had time yet. I believe the snapshot I tested with was from 2/26/2009.
