LTE Modem on WAN2

Hello,

I have a MX-64.

I have a LTE Netgear modem (LB2120) that I want to connect to the WAN2 port.

How can I set it up as as a backup internet solution (if my main connection goes down, the one of the LTE will start automatically).

Thank you

Thank you

I have a MG21 connected to Wan2 and fail over works a little too well!  I would like to setup firewall rules to block either certain networks or certain web applications when running on Wan2 to cut down on cellular charges.  I have cellular firewall rules enabled, but they don't take effect for Wan2.

 

Is there anyway to accomplish what I am trying to do?

 

Thanks,

@DHAnderson, out of the box the cellular firewall rules only apply to a USB modem, or the inbuilt modem on one of the MX ‘C’ models. However, if you contact support you can request that they make the Cellular Firewall rules apply to WAN2 - it’s intended for the exact reason you have described, but you have to make the request through support.

Thank you.  I just opened a support case for that!.
