WiFi WAN allows you to have an additional WAN source for Internet access for failover or as a main WAN source for devices that do not have access to a wired WAN or Mobile internet connectivity


  • To set up WiFi WAN, login to the router's WebUI and navigate to the Network section found the Wireless tab by side (Network → Wireless):

  • To begin configuring WiFi Client first click the 'Scan' button to scan the surrounding area and attempt to connect to a new wireless access point. You can choose whether to scan 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz wireless networks:

  • Once the scan is complete, you will be presented with a list of nearby WiFi Access Points. Locate and choose RUT1's Access Point and click "Join network":

  • You again will be redirected to following window, where you will need to enter WPA passphrase or other security password depending on AP that you are connecting to, name yours network (it will be name of your wireless WAN interface) and assign firewall rule.

  • Next window that opens will be Device Configuration. Values there, mostly, should be left unchanged to avoid connection problems, because they are dictated by Access Point. Other than that, only difference from Access Point settings are in Interface ConfigurationGeneral Setup section, where Mode is set to Client, and Network attached to this wireless interface is WAN instead of LAN:

  • Click Save & Apply and if you configured correctly, you will have Wireless Client working.
