Thanks Martin. I can hardly type due to yesterday’s shoulder surgery so a network diagram is a push for a few months. Here is my use-case.
In my Rv: I’ll only use my Peplink MTD. It’s all configured with Speedfusion and outbound policies. Working great, having studied your video on setting up Solo FH on Vultr. I’ll be plugging a Wifiranger Elite external router/antenna into the free Peplink WAN port for an additional Wifi source and testing soon.
I also use the Peplink at home for all internet needs for WAN and AP services. I want the Peplink (that unfortunately doesn’t support drop-in mode) to do ALL of the WAN management, including with Speedfusion. But, I have a high-end Netgear Nighthawk 9000 router that I want to be the home AP. I was hoping to place this downstream from the Peplink and let the Peplink continue to get the public IP, not provide AP services, and just passthrough on it’s LAN port to the Netgear.
Peplink tells me that I can’t do this for some reason.
You suggested that I might be able to plug the Peplink in on the same LAN subnet but I’m wondering how it will continue to function as the router that provides the public IP and sustain the VPN to the SF server at Vultr.
It’d be wonderful if it is this easy. When I move it from RV to house, I would simply turn it’s DHCP server off, but I would have to change every home client to use the Peplink IP to use it as the gateway.
This is why I am hoping the Peplink can be UPstream from the Netgear AP.
If only the Peplink would act as a WAN gateway with passthrough.
Thanks again for your expertise.
