not use the WAN port?

by CG IT In reply to wireless router

first question is what is the reason for not using the WAN port?

second question how are you creating a PPPOE connection to your ISP without using the WAN port?

the router does as the name implies, routes traffic and can only route traffic through it's WAN port. A router performs an inspection of packets and determines if the packet is destined for the LAN or WAN. If the packet is not destined for the LAN, it will forward the packet to the WAN interface. If no WAN interface is available [no known route] the router will drop the packets.
