Hi,

 

Can anyone please help me with the configuration of this load balancing router?

 

I have 2 ISP lines with 2 routers that I have changed to switch off the wifi, so both acting as modems.

The routers have the internal wifi network (BT Wholehome) connected to an ethernet port.

 

I connected the WAN socket on these routers to the WAN ports (1&2) on the TL-R470+ using ethernet cables

 

I logged into the TL and have created the WAN channels - both Dynamic IP

 

But both show as disconnected and when I try to connect, they say "connecting" for a minute, then disconnected

 

I am obviously doing something wrong - can anyone please advise?

 

Many thanks

Hi  @Brico 

 

It could be an IP conflict. What is the IP address of your ISP routers? 

 

Make sure the tplink router has a different LAN subnet from your two front routers.

For example if the ISP router uses 192.168.0.1/24, then on the tplink router you need to change the LAN IP address to 192.168.2.1/24
