Model: TL-ER5120  
Hardware Version: V7
Firmware Version: V4_20180706

I have a number of broadband connections I wish to connect on the WAN interfaces on the TL-ER5120. However they are in another building and as such they are plugged into my switch on one cable and therefore are currently plugged into the LAN. Can I take a cable from the switch and plug into the WAN on the TL-ER5120 and configure the WAN ports to see these broadband lines, in effect they would be plugged into the LAN and WAN on the TL-ER5120, hopefully this makes some sense. I have done a diagram to help explain.

 


Thanks.

Dave

You can take a cable from the switch and plug into the WAN on the TL-ER5120, but why you still want to take a cable from the switch and plug into the LAN on the ER5120? 

I think you can remove the cable between the LAN and the switch. Then the clients in the LAN of ER5120 still can access the internet.

Thanks, not sure if i have explained it very well. I have both clients and broadband connections on a single cable from another building that plugs into my switch. I want to have these broadband connections managed by the ER5120 so imagine i need to plug them into a WAN port on the ER5120, so would need a cable for each broadband connection plugged from switch into a WAN port on the ER5120.

I got your meaning. You client and broadband is from the same cable connected to the switch. I think it cannot meet your demand. Still need to isolate the clients and broadband.
