On this router, that has already a WAN xDSL port, another WAN port is 
not a priority. If one wants to use the Red Ethernet as you intend to, 
one would use a different router that does not have an xDSL WAN.

I do not want to test your staging tree because your analysis is flawed, 
you refuse to listen to input and feedback and therefore it would be a 
waste of my time. You should make an effort to be less hostile in your 

I am very satisfied with the change I posted on lede-dev because it is 
simple, backward compatible and it does exactly what is required. And 
yes it removes port 5 definition which is also in your patch. Thank you.

You may close the request.
