Backup Default Gateway
If your Netopia equipment does not have an internal modem, or if you do not want to use the internal modem for 
backup, the Netopia Firmware Version 8.6.1 offers backup functionality to an alternate gateway typically 
connected to a LAN por t.
A typical application would be to have a LAN connection from your ENT Enterprise-Series Router to another 
gateway that has, for example, an ISDN or analog modem connection to the Internet, and designating the 
second gateway as the backup gateway. Should the primar y WAN connection fail, traffic would be automatically 
redirected through your alternate gateway device to maintain Internet connectivity.
Two menus control the backup gateway feature:
the Backup Configuration screen in the WAN Configuration menu
Here, you enable the backup feature and set some parameters.
the IP Setup screen in the System Configuration menu
Here, you set the IP address of the alternate gateway device.
Backup Configuration screen
To enable the backup feature, from the Main Menu select WAN Configuration, Advanced Connection Options, 
and then Backup Configuration.
