Restart WAN without restarting router

Hi team,

Anyone knows a way to perform a restart on the WAN interface without restarting entire router(R2). Essentially performing a Shut/No Shut on the WAN interface in order to force WAN to disconnect and reconnect.

Maybe via CLI or any other method ?

It's not possible currently I'm afraid, what's the reason for needing to do this?

Are you running a server or gaming server on your network? But basically no not really possible with any Netduma devices currently.. maybe try using a different device for that?

I usually have to reset my WAN interface whenever there is a network outage from my ISP in order to reconnect and have to restart the router to do that, but that makes all my local services like Plex and RDP to go down as well.
ASUS routers have a Enable/Disable switch for the internet(which basically bounces the WAN port), may be this can be added as a feature in future releases that allows the user to bounce(disable/enable) the WAN without restarting the router.

If i use a different device as a PPPoE host to connect to internet and use Netduma R2 as a bridge, will that allow me to use Netduma Features like GeoFilter etc, i really doubt that it would be the case. Can you please confirm that @Netduma Liam ?

Cool idea! In the mean time you could probably just unplug the WAN cable and reconnect it again? Unfortunately there isn't a bridge mode currently available on the R2.
