New Around Here
RT-AX3000(RT-AX58U) firmware 388.1 with two RT-AC68U firmware 386.7_2 in wired mesh.
Dual Wan:
- WAN port connected to fiber adapter to Ethernet adapter - ISP 1
- eth1 connected to cable modem - ISP 2

My laptop is connected to the AX3000 via wired ethernet, phone via wireless.

Connection types:
- ISP 1 (WAN) is connecting usign PPPOE
- ISP 2 (eth1) is connected via dhcp

1. power on: fiber adapter, router and modem and wait for all to sync.
2. log-on to router and see the primary is connected.
3. surf the web from laptop over wired connection fine.
4. check phone connection over wifi, and see "no internet"

expected result:
phone connected via wireless, should have internet connection.

5. power off fiber adapter, causing a fail-over and the ISP 2 is used.
6. phone regains internet access, and can haply surf the internet, as can the laptop.

Debug steps while connected to ISP 1 using PPPOE:
1, same laptop, when disconnected from wired,and connected to wireless, losses internet access.
2. restoring laptop connection to wired still gives no internet access.

3. ssh to the router and issue curl -v <any web site> , gives 200 OK and website, while wireless, has no respons.
4. I checked iptables-save when connected to ISP1 and 2 and see that the rules for
-A FORWARD ! -i br0 -o ppp0 -j DROP
-A FORWARD ! -i br0 -o eth4 -j DROP
-A FORWARD -i br0 -o br0 -j ACCEPT
-A FORWARD -m state --state INVALID -j DROP
-A FORWARD -s -i br0 -o ppp0 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j DROP
-A FORWARD -i br0 -o ppp0 -j ACCEPT

changed to:
-A FORWARD ! -i br0 -o eth3 -j DROP
-A FORWARD -i br0 -o br0 -j ACCEPT
-A FORWARD -m state --state INVALID -j DROP
-A FORWARD -s -i br0 -o eth3 -p tcp -m tcp --dport 80 -j DROP
-A FORWARD -i br0 -o eth3 -j ACCEPT

so it looks fine.
br0 has the lan connections, which include my wired connection, but I do not see the wireless device there,
How is the wireless routed to the NAT?
