Dear all,

I saw the description how to set up a backup wan connection. see below…

My question would be, how fast does it switch from primary wan connection to backup wan connection in case of failure?

Could I set up the time to switch to backup wan?

    Hello @Andye

    Please refer to our lab test result:

    The ATP100 has two WAN interfaces.

    The backup interface is set to WAN2.

    We used a PC to get a DHCP IP from the LAN1 interface and ping 8.8.8.8 through the WAN1 interface. When the WAN1 port is manually disconnected, there will be a ping drop, but the ping packets will fail over to the WAN2 interface immediately. Therefore, the failover should be fast.
