Hello all,

 

I have an Archer C5400X Wifi Router.  I have a connection to a Mediacom Cable service via a Arris SB8200 via Direct Cable.  I also have a DSL Service from Century Link and tried to set up the modem for WAN Aggregation.  I want to use one service as a fail over for the Mediacom.  However I am not seeing any failover.  Once Mediacom had an outage and I lost all internet connectivity.  What is any am I missing in the settings?

This is a FAQ that shows how to set up link backup on the TL-R600VPN: https://www.tp-link.com/us/support/faq/2133/

 

You can leave the C5400X connected to the R600VPN and use the C5400X as you normally would as a router.

The WAN aggregation does not have a failover feature, mainly meant for ISPs that provide more than 1 Gbps speeds where you have two Etherent cables going to the same modem.

Tony, using TP-Link Products, what should I get and how should it be configured. Should I look at a TL-R600VPN device then connected to C5400X? If so which device should do the routing?

Tony, I purchased the device and configured it based on the FAQ Link you sent. If I turn off DHCP, will the routing function of the device be turned off as well? This is the TL-R600VPN appliance

If you disable the DHCP server you would then need to statically assign connected devices to the R600VPN an IP which may be cumbersome.
