Specify wan for wifi traffic in Rv042

If I connectin an RV042 to a WIFI router, is there any way to specify that all wifi router traffic should be redirected to one specific wan?

Re: Specify wan for wifi traffic in Rv042

Hi Jose, this seems feasible. The WIFI box, the EA6500 and the computers connecting to it can have protocol binding set up to use a specific WAN interface while the WAN 2 can be untouched which will load balance across both WAN 1 and 2 for any traffic not bound to WAN 1.

Specify wan for wifi traffic in Rv042

Hi Jose, I am not sure this question makes sense.

If you're using a wireless connection that traffic does not travel through the RV042.

If you're using a wired connection, then you may run 2 wires from the WIFI router for each WAN port then use protocol binding to send wired connections connecting behind the RV042 through a specific WAN port.

What's your goal exactly?

Specify wan for wifi traffic in Rv042

Hi Tom!

My idea is to put an rv042, and connect one switch and one wifi router to it. All notebooks should connect to the wifi router, and all it's traffic should go through WAN 1. And all servers would be connected to the switch and it's traffic could use any of the WANs of the rv042 (1 or 2).

As I could have a lot of notobboks connected, I don't want to specify protcol binding for each of them, but only for the wifi router, and to make all it's traffic trough WAN1 as i said before. Is that possible with the RV042?

Thanks in advance, and sorry if i was not clear enough, or if the question sound stupid, I  only want to make sure I can do this with rv042 before buying it.

Hi Jose, can you make a basic diagram how you envision the network layout?

Yes of course! I'm thinking something like this.

Re: Specify wan for wifi traffic in Rv042

Hi Tom! But do I have to specify protocol binding for each of the computers connecting to the wifi router? That could be problematic because I don't know in advance how many compuers will be connected to it.

That's was the reason of my first question, if I could specify this kind of protocol binding but only for the wifi router, and then automatically all of the computers traffic connected to this wifi router could go trough WAN 1. Avoiding the need to specify one rule for each computer.

You may specify a protocol bind for the entire subnet the EA6500 is servicing.

Re: Specify wan for wifi traffic in Rv042

Hi Tom, sorry for the long delay, never saw your answer.

How can I specify that protocol bind? The EA6500 is in the same subnet of the servers/switch, and it has his DHCP disable (cause RV042G has it enable), so the only way I see I can do that is specifying each laptop with static IP by mac address in the RV042G and then do the protocol bind, and that's exactly what I would like to avoid.

I'm missing something here?

Thanks in advance!

You can do a range for the IP addresses, it's not limited to 1 by 1. However that can be very cumbersome if the IP addresses are very interspersed.

Re: Specify wan for wifi traffic in Rv042

Unless the laptops need to access the servers via their internal IP address, I'd just turn the DHCP back on for the Linksys so the laptops get their IPs from that.  Be sure that the subnet is different than for the rv042.  Then I'd assign a static IP to that Linksys from the rv042 and map that IP's traffic to WAN1.

The laptops should still be able to access the servers via their public or private IPs in this configuration, but they won't be on the same subnet to directly connect to them.
