Model: TL-ER6120
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 3.01

I have 2 internet connectiions with a static ip for each.

1 is dsl - slow

2 is cable - fast

Each will provide internet access when it is plugged into the network switch.

 

I have set the internal ip address of the 6120 to 192.168.1.1 and to hand out 1929168.1.2 to 254.

 

All I want to do is enable failover from wan2 to wan1

Wan 1 is dsl

 

static ip |link up |ipaddress |255.255.255.0 |mac address| default gateway 0.0.0.0|Primary DNS 8.8.8.8

 

My laptop is connected to the lan port and the dsl is connected to wan1.

The link is connected.

Dns is not finding anything.

This happens when I connect either or both modems to the 6120.

What have I missed?

For your demands, you could configure the Link Backup function, choose the Failover Mode, WAN1 as Backup WAN while WAN2 as Primary WAN.

 

For the Primary WAN and Backup WAN, only one WAN port is activated at the same time. If the router finds the primary WAN is offline, it will use the backup WAN to forward the data. When the primary WAN is recovered, the router will inactive the backup WAN, and transfer data through the primary WAN.

 

 

Before you configure the Link Backup function, please make sure the WAN1 and WAN2 are both configured well, and the WAN Connection Type is mainly up to the ISP.

 

Best regards.

@Fae 

If I connect my laptop directly to the dsl modem and set the laptop to 192.168.2.2  I get internet access.

 

I have set the 6120 to an internal ip of 192.168.1.1.

I have set dhcp to hand out 19.2.168.1.2 to .256.

I have turned on only one wan at wan1.

I turn on my laptop and it picks up an ip address in the 192.168.1.??? range.

I can connect tho the 6120 at 192.168.1.1.

Wan1 has dhcp set to off.

Wan1 has an internal ip of 192.168.2.1

Wan1 -dsl- shows connected on a static ip address with the appropriate dns servers for that line.

Wan1 does not need any port forwarding.

At this point I think I should be getting internet access through wan1.

I am not.

I can't reach anything except the 6120.

What have I missed.

Hello @gjunk,

 

If I connect my laptop directly to the dsl modem and set the laptop to 192.168.2.2  I get internet access.

 

 

Can you get internet access if you have the laptop to obtain the IP address automatically instead?

Or you need to manually configure the IP info including IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway as well as the DNS server?

 

Please record all the IP info (including IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway as well as the DNS server) obtained or configured on the laptop if you can get internet access, and take a screenshot of the page of Network >> WAN1 on the router, we need to verify this info first. Thank you in advance.

 

Best regards!
