Asus AC88U - Dual WAN with Vodafone R219 MiFi dongle


Regular Contributor
Hello Members,

I am trying to get the Dual WAN function enabled with failover. The device I am using is a USB powered Vodafone R219 dongle.

I have the settings correct and enabled it for USB modem but having no luck. I was wondering if anyone else has any experience around this.

On a side but related note (it may even be directly related to the above), I have two USB devices plugged into the 88U device - 1) A standard USB 3.1 stick plugged into the front port that is used for addon/scripts 2) The R219 plugged into the rear USB port. The strange part is that the Network map page shows only ONE USB device (the storage device). Am I right in saying that the second USB device should also show up? See Image 1 below
