Assign traffic to use one WAN

  • Hello all,

    I have a multi WAN setup that I have inherited and although I have tried to figure this out with materials available I have not been able to.

    My question is: Is it possible to assign certain traffic to use only one of the two available WANs. The reason is that one of the modems has been wonky / fails every couple of minutes. It's not a problem for general web browsing but I would like to assign gaming traffic to the more stable WAN until I can get the modem replaced. If I disable the faulty interface everything works fine but we'll only be at half bandwidth for everything.

    Thank you for any assistance offered.

  • try creating firewall rules for traffic you want to divert… click on Advanced button for gateway and define which gateway you want the traffic diverted... you can also specify what hosts will be affected by the rerouting... aliases can come in handy.

    hope this helps

  • Yes, this is very easy to do.

    I've included a screen shot of my configuration for you.  I have a server on that subnet that I want to use one gateway exclusively for it's outgoing traffic.  So I created a rule to do just that.  You can do this for a single IP or for a subnet.  I have one of my subnets going out one WAN and the other the second WAN.  This is done with a different configuration, manual NATing.  I've also enclosed that screen shot so you can take a look at it.
