Hello. I wonder if it is possible to turn of my main wired wan to use my failover wan (mobile) by sending an sms to Rut950?

Now I have made two profiles one with wired wan and failover (mobile connection) and one with only mobile connection. I can then switch between these two profiles by sending sms [pr "profile_name"]. It is working but takes some time to change profile so I hope there is a simple way to just turn of the main wan with sms.

Actually, your selected method for controlling Wired WAN is quite good as there is no direct SMS utility to disable Wired WAN connection.

There is a way to disable Wired WAN with UCI commands, but for them to be executed it will probably take more time than just switching profiles with SMS.

uci set network.wan2.disabled='1'

uci set network.wan2.enabled='0'

uci commit network


These commands would need to be executed to disable Wired WAN and they must be sent as separate SMS, so I think it's easier for you to stay at profile switching.
