by on ‎07-02-2014 03:15 PM

Internet-Failover is a newly added feature in InstantOS 3.2. When enabled, it can trigger to change the uplink if Internet is unreachable.

 

As of InstantOS 3.2, four types of uplink configuration is available

Ethernert
Wi-Fi
3G/4G
PPPoE

 

 

 

IAP sends out a ICMP request every 30 seconds, and if there are 10 replies lost in total, under current uplink, then IAP will disable current uplink then switch to next uplink.
