Prior before the crash,
1. Tried to setup backup uplink which have same DNS with main uplink. Reboot system. Backup uplink failed to make connection.
2. Then tried with different connection type, Ehternet Static, PPPT, Ethernet DHCP, and also different NICs for backup uplink. Reboot system. Backup uplink failed to connect.

Hi mhLearn,

do you have the chance to test the system with a pppoe concentrator attached on the uplink?

here you can find a guide to install a pppoe concentrator: [^]

Hi lorenzo,

thank for you suggestion. The download link in the page doesn't work.

Anywhere, the 2nd uplink has been setup as Ethernet Static card to avoid the possible issue, i.e.
    1. Main uplink connection is controlled and initiated by Endian Firewall, and
    2. 2nd uplink connection is controlled and initiated by modem.
