MP70 - WAN Priority

I am attempting to set WAN priority on our MP70 units. We have the wireless setup as AP+client, and they connect to our wireless network fine. I also have RSSI link monitoring enabled. When I set the WAN priority for wifi to first and cellular second, any clients connected to the router lose WAN connectivity. The router does pull a WAN IP from our network as it should and does switch to wifi as the WAN interface as it should, so it seems like all of that is going well. As soon as you pull away from the wifi and it switches to cellular as the primary WAN interface, everything starts working as it should again.

It seems like there is some sort of routing consideration that we have not thought of, or some other setting that needs to be enabled on the router, but we cannot get this figured out. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi sfullergs,

Which FW version MP70 are you using?

Could you help to share your configuration template and log file on MP70?

I have an advice for you in this case:

First, You can check and disable the Policy Routing
The Policy routing rules used to determine the WAN interface over which outbound traffic is sent

You can refer to page 102 in 41113545_ALEOS 4.13.0 Software Configuration User Guide for AirLink MP70_r1.pdf for more details.

Second, You can configure Reliable Static Routing (RSR)
Reliable Static Routing enables you to force specified traffic to use different routing rules (rather than the default, which is usually cellular) to direct specified traffic (from or to either the AirLink gateway or a connected device) to a designated primary route. If the primary route fails, the specified traffic uses a backup route. First, you designate specific traffic to use the primary route, based on the destination IP address and sub net mask. A configured Tracking Object Test verifies the validity of the primary route. If the test fails, the backup route is used. The Tracking Object Test continues to run and as soon as it returns a “Pass”, traffic is switched back to the primary route.
You can direct the traffic to a network or to an individual host.

Select the interfaces for the primary and backup routes. The options are:
· Wi-Fi (default for primary route)
· Cellular (default for backup route)
· Ethernet 1

You can refer to page 98 in 41113545_ALEOS 4.13.0 Software Configuration User Guide for AirLink MP70_r1.pdf for more details.
