Witch port is best for WAN on RB1100AH!!??

Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:56 pm

Guys,
I need help with RB1100AH, I need the below setup
1 port WAN
1 port LAN >>Local DHCP Sever
PPPOE server
The rest ports use as switch .
I get confused from where to start, how can I use ports 11-12-13 ???
1-5 is first switch group
6-10 is second switch group
May I use jumper cable to switch the group for examp. from 5 to 6??
Witch port is best for WAN??

Port 11 is connected to the network processor via the same type interface as the two Atheros switch chips which support ports 1-5 & 6-10, whereas ports 12 & 13 are connected via PCIe interfaces.

Ports 11 & 12 can be configured to failover (essentially join together at Level1) and port 13 can support POE.

In the absence of any failover / POE reason to do otherwise port 11 is probably a good WAN candidate.
