In IP→Routes (and IPv6→Routes) you define two routes to via the given gateways.

Give the fallback-route a greater value for ›distance‹ than your primary route has and you're done.
If you like what I've posted and want to see more of that, then please say thank you by giving me karma.

Please do not contact me by PM or email.

Failover Scanrio

Sat May 18, 2013 8:44 am

I'm using the advice from this site

Tested this morning as a matter of fact. Worked for me.

We have a wireless 5m feed for a resort and a backup 1.5 m feed.

If the wireless goes down it auto switches to the DSL feed then switches back after the wireless route come back up.
