Hello good day, 

Regarding your question i will be checking with the team if it is possible with RUTX series. But on the RUT9XX series it is possible to have 2 separate Wired WAN Source. You can refer to this link: https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/RUT950_Use_LAN_port_as_WAN#/media/File%3ANetworking_rutxxx_configuration_examples_use_lan_as_wan_5_v1.png

I will get back to you if i have confirmation or guide regarding applying this kind of configuration to RUTX series.

Hope it helps

Regards,
Jerome

Hello,

For your question about the 3 LAN ports of RUTX11 they are actually bridged LAN ports they belong with "eth0" and while the other port the WAN port belongs to "eth1". This is based on the configuration of the router.

Hope it helps.

Hello Andrea, 

Sorry it took a bit of time. I have received feedback on our HQ Team regarding this matter.

Here are the steps to make LAN 3 as another WAN source:

1. You need to create VLAN configuration you can do it from Web UI > Network > VLAN.
2. You need to add another VLAN then configure it like what is shown below:

Here is a much clearer picture:

Save and Apply the config.
3. Now go to the Network > Interfaces of the Web UI.
4. You need to add a new interface name let say WAN_PORT

5. After successfully adding the new interface press Edit to configure it.
6. Set the protocol to DHCP

 
7. Select Switch Protocol

8. Now configure the Physical Interface to "eth0.3" 

9. Lastly on the Firewall Settings make this interface belong to the WAN Zone in the firewall settings.

Save & Apply settings.
10. The final result would be like this:

I have an RUTX11 and am trying to replicate the dual WAN setting based on the excellent instructions below.

Unfortunately I am not able to replicate fully. Once created the new interface is not showing up on "failover" tab.

This may be because when I am setting the protocol to DHCP I not getting the option for the "Switch Protocol" As shown in the picture below, I am getting "Hostname to send ..." and it is defaulting to "Teltonika-RUTX.com.

Any assistance you could provide would be welcome.
