MX250 1 x USB (cellular failover1 )

Is there any information  regarding the Cellular failover for the MX250 in case I lose both WAN 1 and WAN 2.


I undertsnad this is just a last gasp

I don't think I would rely on cellular failover for something as "core" as an MX250.


I think what I would do is get an MX67C, plug your second Internet circuit into that, put in a SIM card for cellular failover, and then plug the LAN of the MX67C into WAN2 of the MX250.

I have 2 WAN already.  I am looking for a way to at least get to the internet for slack and support.

We sent everyone home for the day  but had to walk around to notify people so a last gasp would have been helpful
