Re: RV042 Load Balance problem

1. Please confirm the settings of your WAN1 and WAN2? DSL or Cable? DHCP, STATIC or PPPoE?

2. ISP for both WAN1 and WAN2 came from different or same provider?

3. What is the hardware and firmware version of yor router?
4. Have you tried resetting your router / re-configure?

5. Did you update the firmware of the router?

2.Different providers.
