We've got a bunch of Cisco 877 routers we use on our remote sites for data/voice VPN back to our fixed offices.
Originally when we inherited these routers, I only new Cisco switches, so had a steep learning curve, got them configured (probably not the best but it works!) and we've been using them fine since.
I now need to make it so a wireless AP at one of these locations can break out to the internet locally rather than over the VPN; I'm not having any luck.
The specific IP routes were originally so we could access the Cisco Meraki AP from the cloud and monitor it, which worked great, but now we have created a Guest Wireless SSID for other contractors on site which requries the local breakout.
The biggest issue I have (apart from not getting this to work); is that I don't have a spare router to test with, I am having to do this on the live router, and set a timed reload in case anything goes terribly wrong...
Additionally, when we get new BT lines/DSL installed, we have issues with the VPN dropping out, but we can still telnet in and reload the router on the public IP.
This generally only happens for the first two months from a new line being installed, but I'd imagine there must be something I can configure to make the router aware, and when it notices the VPN is down to try it again.
I reconfigured the access points in question to use a teleworker gateway, which meant I could define the IPs they were contacting and applied static routes for these; unnecessary workaround, but it fixed it.
