I have just purchased the RV042 and while it is working great on WAN1 over Xfinity/Comcast broadband, I'm unable to get it working with my AT&T DSL for WAN2. I am planning on running this in failover mode - not load balancing.
The DSL modem it is connected to is a SpeedStream (hooking up laptop directly works etc. etc.). The SpeedStream is set to PPOE authentication passed in via the computer (in this case the RV042). On the RV042 side, I set it to use PPOE, using the credentials as given my AT&T DSL. The DNS servers are set to the ones recommended.
I fiddled back and forth a bit more.....when I pull the power on xfinity broadband it fails over now it seems that I'm getting a good ip address, my dns address is set properly and I'm able to resolve name and ping external ip addresses. Somehow I can't get http working from my browser. Any idea?
Turns out that the solution was somewhat obvious. The Network Password on my SpeedSteam was wrong and the AT&T Password Sync manager was able to take care of this. Once it sync'ed properly, I changed back the setting on the SpeedStream so that it would do the authentication instead of having the RV042 doing it.
I'm now able to pull my Xfinity WAN connection, and my AT&T DSL connection springs into life. Yeah!!!!
