Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 190412 Rel.66770n

Hi,

I live in an area with terrible ADSL and decent 4G+ signal. I am trying to configure the MR600 to use 4G when available, and failover to ADSL if 4G drops. So far, I an only find a way to do the opposite (ADSL when available, and failover to 4G). How do I achieve this?

 

Many thanks for any help.

@Abhilash.Jena this is the reverse of what I need. I need 4G to be the primary connection, and fall back to ADSL when it fails.

@Fowlet did you ever get this right? I'm in a similar position - when it works the 4g connection is preferable but I'd like to switch over to the more reliable DSL connection (available over LAN)

@ahoydave unfortunately not. I'm 90% sure it's not possible. I even looked into flashing the router with custom firmware, but nothing was available about 6 months ago - maybe that has changed? Unlikely.

I know it is possible if you use something like ROOter (Openwrt based) but MR600 isn't on their supported list unfortunately

It's a pity since they've got the logic in there to go the other way round :-/

Hi Guys,

 

I achieve this using a slightly different method using a TP-Link router/load-balancer.  Check out the link below:

Cool yeah that would work. Obviously requires some more pieces of kit but worth thinking about - thanks for the write up!
