I do not want to stop both Wans! I tried service stop_wan.. Which does indeed that. I only want to stop wan1 which is eth4. I would also like to know is there a terminal command to release the ip of wan1. See the problem i'm having is this. I want Wan1 or eth4 to release its ip after Wan0 comes back online and not hold the ip. So I want Wan1 to go back to cold-standby as asus puts it. If anyone has suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
