Dual Wan configuration

Hi,

I have now 2 WAN connections, one via a Huawei B715 4G router and one via my ADSL box.
The 4G is the main connection, and the ADSL is the backup connection.
I want to configure the dual wan but it seems that i didn't adress correctly my network...
The 4G router is on a x.x.3.1 adress and network, and the ADSL is on a x.x.1.1 adress and network
The ASUS is maanging a x.x.2.1-254 network with all my equipements.

When i configure the WAN in the ASUS i give x.x.3.100 (ip adress of ASUS on the 4G network) for extended network and x.x.3.1 for gateway
When i configure the dual WAN i say :
- primary = wan
- secondary = ethernet LAN - LAN port2 where the cable coming from the ADSL box is plugged
- mode = switching (not load balancing)

in normal mode all is working fine on the 4G access, but if i cut the 4G, it tries to switch to ADSL but as i don't enter the ip adress neither a gateway adress for this dual wan it doesn't work...

so i think i am doing something wrong in my ip adresses for these two WAN accesses.

thanks for your advices...

in the meantime i have found a way to make it working, i have just defined the WAN as automatic IP instead of fixed IP, and it work like charm, switching to backup and coming back to main....

New Around Here
Dual WAN seems to be broken in newer firmwares. I load balance and it's basically non functional regardless of configuration. Only when using two ethernet connections. Dual WAN using usb works correctly.
