Beginning a few days ago, we have been experiencing an ISP Outage where WAN1 is down but the RV082 is not failing over to WAN2. We are being forced to physically pull the connector from the WAN1 port so that failover works.
Our Dual-WAN settings are as follows: - Smart Link Backup: Primary WAN1 - Enabled Network Service Detection - Retry Count: 2 Retry timeout: 30 seconds - When Fail: Remove the Connection
I have the exact same problem. If the ADSL router fails, the LAN connection between the ADSL router and the RV082 is still active. It seems the internal link has to fail for the failover to take effect. Is there a way to solve this? Does the ADSL router need RIP/SIP support? Does the RV082 need to be in Router mode for this to work?
Have you tried to have the RV082 router ping a remote host instead? Try unchecking the Default Gateway box and check the Remote Host box instead. You can have it ping a dns server such as 188.8.131.52. DNS Lookup Host to www.google.com should work also. I've noticed that sometimes the router will still think that WAN1 connection is alive because it can reach the DSL or Cable modem even though that modem has no WAN IP address.
