WAN Configuration[edit | edit source]

The WAN Configuration section is used to configure different protocols for WAN interfaces.

DHCP client[edit | edit source]


The DHCP protocol should be used when the source of your internet has a DHCP server enabled. If that is the case, when you select the DHCP protocol you can use it as is, because most networks will not require any additional advanced configuration.

General Setup[edit | edit source]

field name value description
Protocol Static | DHCP | PPPoE; Default: DHCP The protocol used by the WAN interface
Hostname to send when requesting DHCP ip | hostname; Default: router's hostname Host name to which the DHCP request will be sent to

Advanced Settings[edit | edit source]


For the DHCP protocol you can specify custom DNS servers, define the gateway metric, override router’s Wired WAN MAC address, set MTU and more.

field name value description
Force Link off | on; Default: off Set interface properties regardless of the link carrier (If set, carrier sense events do not invoke hotplug handlers).
Use builtin IPv6-management off | on; Default: on Disable or enable built in IPv6-management
Use broadcast flag off | on; Default: off Required for certain ISPs (Internet Service Providers), e.g. Charter with DOCSIS 3
Use default gateway off | no; Default: on Uses the default gateway obtained through DHCP. If left unchecked, no default route is configured
Use DNS servers advertised by peer off | no; Default: on Uses DNS servers obtained from DHCP. If left unchecked, the advertised DNS server addresses are ignored
Use gateway metric ip; Default: 0 The WAN configuration by default generates a routing table entry. In this field you can alter the metric of that entry. Higher metric means higher priority
Client ID to send when requesting DHCP string; Default: " " Client ID which will be sent when requesting a DHCP lease
Vendor class to send when requesting DHCP string; Default: " " Vendor class which will be sent when requesting a DHCP lease
Override MAC address mac; Default: " " 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 router). 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 [0..1500]; Default: " " Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) – specifies the largest possible size of a data packet


Static address[edit | edit source]


The Static protocol is used when the source of your internet doesn’t have a DHCP server enabled. Therefore, in order to connect to the internet, you have to make configurations in accordance to that source.

General Setup[edit | edit source]

field name value description
Protocol Static | DHCP | PPPoE; Default: DHCP The protocol used by the WAN interface
IPv4 address ip; Default: " " Your router’s address on the WAN network
IPv4 netmask ip; Default: " " Netmask defines how "large" a network is
IPv4 gateway ip; Default: " " The address where the router will send all the outgoing traffic
IPv4 broadcast ip; Default: " " IP broadcasts are used by BOOTP and DHCP clients to find and send requests to their respective servers
Use custom DNS servers ip; Default: " " When the router needs to resolve a hostname (“www.google.com”, “www.cnn.com”, etc.) to an IP address, it will forward all the DNS requests to the gateway. By entering custom DNS servers the router will take care of the host name resolution. You can enter multiple DNS servers to provide redundancy in case one of the servers fails

Advanced settings[edit | edit source]


The Advanced Settings tab will change in accordance to which network protocol is selected. For the Static protocol you can turn NAT on or off, override the router’s MAC address, MTU and define the gateway's metric.

Use gateway metric integer; Default: 0 The WAN configuration by default generates a routing table entry. In this field you can alter the metric of that entry. Higher metric means higher priority
IPv6 assignment length 64 | disabled | custom; Default: disabled Assign a part of given length of every public IPv6-prefix to this interface
IPv6 Address ip; Default: " " Assigns an IPv6 address for this interface. CIDR notation: address/prefix
IPv6 Gateway ip; Default: " " Assigns a default IPv6 gateway for this interface. CIDR notation: address/prefix
IPv6 Routed Prefix integer [0...128]; Default: " " Public prefix routed to this device for distribution to clients.
IPv6 Suffix eui64 | random | fixed value like ::1 or ::1:2; Default: " " Set Optional. When IPv6 prefix (like 'a:b:c:d::') is received from a delegating server, use the suffix (like '::1') to form the IPv6 address ('a:b:c:d::1') for the interface.

PPPoE[edit | edit source]


The PPPoE protocol is mainly used if you have a DSL internet provider.

General Setup[edit | edit source]


The General configuration tab for the PPPoE protocol is mainly used to specify your PAP/CHAP login information, but you can also configure some additional, more specific settings.

field name value description
Protocol Static | DHCP | PPPoE; Default: DHCP The protocol used by the WAN interface
PAP/CHAP username string; Default: " " The username that you use to connect to your carrier’s network
PAP/CHAP password string; Default: " " he password that you use to connect to your carrier’s network
Access concentrator string; Default: " " The name of the access concentrator. Leave empty to auto detect
Service name string; Default: " " The name of the service. Leave empty to auto detect

Advanced Settings[edit | edit source]


For the PPPoE protocol you can turn NAT on or off, specify custom DNS servers, define the gateway metric, configure LCP echo settings and more.
