The information in this page is updated in accordance with firmware version RUTX_R_00.02.05.1.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The WAN page is used to to set up WAN network interfaces, which are used to connect device with external networks.

This manual page provides an overview of the WAN windows in RUTX10 devices.

If you're having trouble finding this page or some of the parameters described here on your device's WebUI, you should turn on "Advanced WebUI" mode. You can do that by clicking the "Basic" button under "Mode", which is located at the top-right corner of the WebUI.

WAN[edit | edit source]

The WAN section displays WAN network interfaces currently existing on this device.

From here you can turn the interfaces on or off, change their priority* or enter an interface's configuration page.


* You can change the priority by dragging and dropping an interface to another position. Moving an interface changes its metric value in the configuration file. Interfaces that are higher on the list have greater priority.

Interface configuration[edit | edit source]

This section provides information on WAN interface configuration. There is one type of WAN interface on the device:

  • Ethernet WAN

To begin configuring an interface, click the 'Edit' button on the right side of the interface:

Wired WAN


This section covers all parameters directly related to a wired (Ethernet) WAN interface.

General Setup


The General Setup section is used to configure the protocol and all the different parameters that go along with each protocol. This section is different for each protocol.

General Setup: Static address

The static address protocol uses a predefined manual configuration instead of obtaining parameters automatically via a DHCP lease.

Networking rutos manual wan wan configuration general setup static address.png

Field Value Description
IPv4 address ip4; default: none The IPv4 address interface of this interface. An IP address identifies a device on a network and allows it to communicate with other devices.
IPv4 netmask netmask; default: none The IPv4 netmask of this interface. A netmask is used to define how "large" a network is by specifying which part of the IP address denotes the network and which part denotes a device.
IPv4 gateway ip4; default: none The IPv4 address gateway of this interface. An interface's gateway is the default next hop address to access other networks.
DNS servers ip4; default: none DNS server addresses that this interface will use. If left empty, DNS servers are assigned automatically. To see what DNS servers are currently used, you can check the contents of the /tmp/resolv.conf.auto file.
General Setup: DHCP client

The DHCP client protocol is used to set up an interface which obtains its configuration parameters automatically via a DHCP lease.

Field Value Description
Hostname to send when requesting DHCP string; default: none A hostname for this interface used to identify this machine on the DHCP server.
General Setup: DHCPv6 client

The DHCPv6 client protocol is used to set up an IPv6 interface which obtains its configuration parameters automatically via a DHCP lease.

Field Value Description
Request IPv6-address try | force | disabled; default: try Defines the behaviour for requesting an address.
Request IPv6-prefix of length integer [0..64] | Automatic | disabled ; default: Automatic Defines how this will request a IPv6 ULA-Prefix length. If set to 'disabled' the interface will obtain a single IPv6 address without a subnet for routing.
General Setup: PPPoE

The PPPoE protocol is used to set up a PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) connection over the Ethernet port.

Field Value Description
PAP/CHAP username string; default: none Username used in PAP/CHAP authentication.
PAP/CHAP password string; default: none Password used in PAP/CHAP authentication.

Advanced Settings


The Advanced Settings section is used to set up some of the more specific and less frequently used interface parameters. This section is different for each protocol.

Advanced Settings: Static address

Advanced Settings information for Static protocol is provided in the table below.

Networking rutos manual wan wan configuration advanced settings static address.png

Field Value Description
Override MAC address mac; default: none When set, uses a user-defined MAC address for the interface.
Override MTU integer [1..9200]; default: none Changes the interface's allowed maximum transmission unit (MTU) size. It is the largest size of a protocol data unit (PDU) that can be transmitted in a single network layer transaction.
Use gateway metric integer; default: 0 A metric specifies the priority of the gateway. The lower the metric, the higher the priority (0 for highest priority).


Advanced Settings: DHCP client

Advanced Settings information for DHCP protocol is provided in the table below.

Networking rutos manual wan wan configuration advanced settings dhcp client.png

Field Value Description
Use default gateway off | on; default: on When enabled, add a default route for this interface.
Use DNS servers advertised by peer off | on; default: on Specifies whether to use DNS servers obtained automatically or specified manually.
Use custom DNS servers off | on; default: on Specifies whether to use DNS servers obtained automatically or specified manually.
Note: this field only becomes visible when Use DNS servers advertised by peer is set to off
Use gateway metric integer; default: 0 A metric specifies the priority of the gateway. The lower the metric, the higher the priority (0 for highest priority).
Override MAC address mac; default: none Override MAC address of the WAN interface. For example, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) gives you a static IP address and it might also bind it to your computers MAC address (i.e., that IP will only work with your computer but not with your device). In this field you can enter your computer’s MAC address and fool the gateway in to thinking that it is communicating with your computer.
Override MTU integer [1..9200]; default: none Changes the interfaces allowed maximum transmission unit (MTU) size. It is the largest size of a protocol data unit (PDU) that can be transmitted in a single network layer transaction.
Advanced Settings: DHCPv6 client

Advanced Settings information for DHCPv6 protocol is provided in the table below.

Networking rutos manual wan wan configuration advanced settings dhcpv6 client.png

Field Value Description
Use default gateway off | on; default: on When enabled, add a default route for this interface.
Use DNS servers advertised by peer off | on; default: on Specifies whether to use DNS servers obtained automatically or specified manually.
Use custom DNS servers off | on; default: on Specifies whether to use DNS servers obtained automatically or specified manually.
Note: this field only becomes visible when Use DNS servers advertised by peer is set to off
Override MAC address mac; default: none When set, uses a user-defined MAC address for the interface.
Override MTU integer [1..9200]; default: none Changes the interface's allowed maximum transmission unit (MTU) size. It is the largest size of a protocol data unit (PDU) that can be transmitted in a single network layer transaction.
Advanced Settings: PPPoE

Advanced Settings information for PPPoE protocol is provided in the table below.

Networking rutos manual wan wan configuration advanced settings pppoe.png

Field Value Description
Obtain IPv6 address Automatic | Disabled | Manual; default: Automatic Defines behaviour for obtaining an IPv6 address.
Use default gateway off | on; default: on When enabled, add a default route for this interface.
Use gateway metric integer; default: 0 A metric specifies the priority of the gateway. The lower the metric, the higher the priority (0 for highest priority).
Use DNS servers advertised by peer off | on; default: on Specifies whether to use DNS servers obtained automatically or specified manually.
Use custom DNS servers off | on; default: on Specifies whether to use DNS servers obtained automatically or specified manually.
Note: this field only becomes visible when Use DNS servers advertised by peer is set to off
Override MTU integer [1..1500]; default: none Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) – specifies the largest possible size of a data packet.

DHCP Server: IPv6 Settings


Refer to the table below for information on the IPv6 Settings section.
