(Another) Dual WAN Setup Help

Thu Nov 27, 2014 11:43 pm

First time poster - long time reader. I've learned lots from the forums, but I'm stuck on this one.

I have a desire to have a dual WAN configuration that would fit this setup:
ISP1 / DHCP / would normally handle traffic for all computers/servers
ISP2 / PPPoE / would normally handle traffic for the VoIP phones.

First of all, I can't figure out how to successfully route some traffic out of one interface, and other traffic out of another. I need some help there.

Secondly, and this is where the word "normally" comes in for traffic plan, I'd also like this configuration to be able to survive the failure of one of the WANs. (I know that the phones would have to re-resister / that's OK and it's handled)

In most cases I'll be using RB951Ui-2HnD for these deployments, running 6.21 (the latest release we've tested and works bug-free with everything we do with RouterOS, so far).

Thanks in advance!

If you assign different address ranges to the 2 sets of equipment then you can use a route rule to lookup in a different routing table, and then have a different default route in that table.

To cope with fallback add a 2nd default route via the other connection with a bigger distance
