Hi,
I just bought a ER8411.

I have connected 2 WANs:
- one link with a fixed IP address, it works
- one link with an IP obtained via DHCP, which doesn't work.

If I connect a Mac directly to the provider's router (so I unplug the cable that goes into the WAN's ER8411 and connect it to the Mac), the Mac receives an IP address via DHCP and I can connect the Internet (web, mail, etc etc)

When I reconnect the ER8411 to the provider's router (using the cable that was in the Mac), the WAN interface doesn't receive an IP address. (Of course, I press the "Connect" button)

The only event I see in the log is:

WAN/LAN6: DHCP client setting IP failed (IP-Address=192.168.0.28, Mask=255.255.255.0, Gateway=192.168.0.1)

FYI, I use the same subnet on my LAN (192.168.0.0/24) but this setting must works.

Thanks !

you will never get this to work, you can't use the same ip network on WAN and LAN.
