Model: TL-R600VPN  
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 4.0.3

It seems that even TP-link's website does not have this model.  This is a multiple WAN device since I have 2 service providers and want to set it up as a failover..if one service provider goes down, it automatically switches to the other.  A little bit confused in the set up.  First, went into WAN and set it to 2, therefore WAN 1 and WAN 2.  Both led lights light up.  However, when I go to system status, WAN 1 says  offline, even though my computer still able to connect.  

 

I have more screenshots but will only allowed me to upload just one "number of files must be less than 1" .  Don't know what this means.

 

Please advise and thank you

  I have the TL-R600VPN and tried using the Link Backup feature for WAN backup. What I did not realize is the the Backup WAN is automatically shutdown if the Primary(s) is available when Link Backup is configured. I need to use both WANs if both links are up. I have most clients using WAN1 normally, but use WAN2 if necessary. I also have other clients that use WAN2 exclusively.

 

  Now, instead of Link Backup, I use Policy Routing which allows me to force some clients to WAN2 only and the rest of the clients use WAN1 as priority and then the router will automatically route the majority of the clients to WAN2 if WAN1 is down.

 

  Don't know if this helps, but wanted to offer the suggestion in case this may work for you.
