Setting up the WAN port as a LAN port in KN-2610, KN-1810, KN-1010, KN-1910 and KN-3010

On Keenetic Giant (KN-2610), Titan (KN-1810), Hero (KN-1010), Skipper (KN-1910) and Speedster (KN-3010), if you don't use the WAN port (for example, you have a 3G/4G USB modem for an Internet connection or the router is in Extender Mode), you can use this port as a LAN port.

This setting can be done from the router's web interface by deleting the 'Wired' interface in the following way:

1. Assign the 'Provider' role for any of the free ports 1-4 (step 2 of the instructions Changing the operating mode and role of network ports);
2. Remove the 'Wired' interface (step 3 of the instructions Changing the operating mode and role of network ports);
3. Check on the 'Home segment' tab under 'Ports and VLANs settings' that port '0' is included in this network segment.


It can also be done using the command-line interface (CLI). Make the following settings:

Login: admin
Password: ***************
(config)> interface Bridge0 include GigabitEthernet1
Network::Interface::Bridge: "Bridge0": GigabitEthernet1 included.
(config)> system configuration save
Core::ConfigurationSaver: Saving configuration...


The 'Wired' (ISP) interface will disappear from the web interface, and WAN port 0 can be used as LAN.

To get the WAN interface back, do the following setup:

Login: admin
Password: ***************
(config)> no interface Bridge0 include GigabitEthernet1
Network::Interface::Bridge: "Bridge0": GigabitEthernet1 included.
(config)> system configuration save
Core::ConfigurationSaver: Saving configuration...


The WAN interface will return with the previous settings and can be used as a WAN port.

NOTE: Important! To avoid errors when running the above commands, we recommend making this setting using the default configuration (i.e. after resetting the user settings to factory defaults).
