These days a large number of routers support dual WAN connections. Just look for a router with dual WAN and auto failover/failback.

It basically means you have two providers (ie cable and DSL, or cable and 4g) and then the router will detect a failure of one link and move everything to the second.

It's not seamless in the retail space of routers, in other words you will experience a disconnection of around 30-60 seconds depending on your hardware.

For absolute flawless failover you need high-end equipment that can be difficult to setup for a typical soho network.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

I use a TP-Link dual Wan router.

You can configure it in failover, or you can use it 50/50 or any %
Ninjatrader perfers to be on one line and switch when necessary

it's low cost, +/- 200 euro
works fine

If you choose two providers, go for two technologies

I have a cable provider over cable and a VDSL2 provider (over a telephone copper line)
two companies two technologies

There are devices with G3/G4 backup using mobile, but i haven't tested that
might be also an option...

@rahulgopi thanks. guess here you can have 3 Wan ports. 2 FE based & 1 4G based

@rleplae is there a particular model you found good. The TP-Links are very attractive from a cost perspective and few seem can do easy 2/ 3WANs.

thnx
