Hi, thanks in advance for any insight into this problem. I am using a Peplink Balance 212E multi-wan router. Been using it for 3 to 4 years successfully. I have two ISP’s providing internet to me via wifi. One on WAN 1 and the other on WAN 2. Recently one of the providers switched his supplier of bandwidth/connectivity and is now using the same source as the other. They first six digits of the WAN public IP’s are the same now. One provider has me NAT’d to a fixed public IP whereby I enter a fixed IP in the WAN setting on my router. The 2nd provider is using PPPOE and I am required to enter a username and password. When that connection is made I get a public IP that is the same every time and as I mentioned has the same first six digits and the other providers public IP.
My problem is that when the 2nd provider switched my network became very, very slow. Provider 1 normally gives me up to 6 meg of bandwidth and provider two allows up to 10 meg. Now I have had to turn off one WAN in order to actually make it usable. There is some sort of conflict going on and the router isn’t able to deal with it. When both WANs are live the connection to the internet is crawling. Either one works fine as long as the other is turned off. Don’t understand why, any help?
