Model: ER7206 (TL-ER7206)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.4.1

I have recently updated my OC200 controller software to v5.13.24.  How do I disable the SPF WAN port.  When I go to >Devices>Gateway>Ports>SPF WAN>Ports>Edit Action...the "Enable" check box is greyed out.  What am I doing wrong.  I am not using the SPF WAN port and it is frustrating when I go to the dashboard screen the the SPF WAN tab is always selected by default.  I have to select the WAN tab to get my details.  This has only started since my latest controller update.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Rob,

You can NOT disable any default WAN.

you can't disable deafult wan port, looks like this came on one of the last controller upgrades, I have the same problem with ER8411, very annoying, I wish they would change this, like you this unused wan port always comes up first.
