    Default route a specific user to backup ISP

    We use 2 ISPs in Untangle, with the secondary ISP as failover backup (its a much slower connection).

    However, we have an online weather station that only seems to work properly when it connects via the ISP we use as the backup.

    So is there any way to have the weather station (which has its own static IP and mac address) to always connect to the backup ISP?

    Yes, In WAN Balancer->settings->routes.

    Ok, but what if we do not have WAN Balancer enabled.... we just have WAN Failover enabled. Do we turn Balancer ON and set 100% of traffic to the primary Interface (so that the secondary ISP only cuts in during a failover)?

    Yep, that'll work.

    With WAN Balancer you need WAN Failover. In fact we include WAN Failover with Balancer.

    You can do 100% on the primary to only use the primary unless the primary is down.

    Great, I will enable Balancer and do 100% on the primary... and then can add in the route to force that specific IP to the secondary. Should work out great.
