Starlink

Anyone having issues with starlink in use for a multiwan? We have fiber over optimum and then starlink configured as a failover. The failover did not effectively work due to wg reporting that interface down due to failed pings to google. We tried round robin however we are seeing failed pings from a client device every 7th ping. Any specific settings that had better success? DNS servers?

    Hi @MarkRubin
    If the firebox is reporting missed pings, it's usually because the connection is dropping them, or not delivering them. Changing the link monitor target won't really change that you're probably dropping traffic on that connection.

    If you're able to replicate it, I'd suggest contacting that ISP for help -- they may be able to help fix the issue you're running into.

    If pings aren't reliable, I'd suggest doing a TCP connect to a website that you use on that starlink connection.
