Since 07.03.xx the word "MAIN" is missing in the Overview-Page, in the past it was attached to the Interface that is main-interface.

Please check.

Best regards, Rainer

The issue has already been forwarded to the development team. 

At the moment, you can check Network -> Interfaces section, where Main WAN is the highest online interface in the list. 

It can also be derived from the routing table from Status -> Routes -> General routes section as a route with Target and lowest metric.

SSH command:

  • ip route get

will also provide you main WAN interface name.

Now "MAIN" word is visible again in WebUI hence 07.04.
But your cmd below is not working to get MAIN/wan that is currently used (it just shows 1st IF with default-gateway, but I have 3 ones: eth1, wlan0, wwan0):

ip route get

I checked all here in community without any finding: HOW I can get the current MAIN/wan-interface ?

Many thx for your help,

Try another command: 

  • ubus call interfaces_status | grep Main

Best regards,
