how to use mobile hotspot as backup internet


i have rogers cable and i am getting frequent disconnects. since i am a small time forex trader, i want to use a proper backup. currently i can setup my cell phone as hotspot and use the internet but i have to disconnect my ethernet cable before the hotspot is used.
i am using win7 on 1 machine and win 10 on another. how can i setup so the hotspot is used as a fallback automatically disconnecting the enternet cable ?

Re: how to use mobile hotspot as backup internet


I have a RT-N66U that you can setup USB tethering. I actually just did this and was thinking of creating a how-to. Essentially you:

Enable USB on the USB application in the router
On WAN go to the Dual WAN tab enable it and enable failover
On your phone enable tethering with your phone connected to the router via USB

Junkone, What's causing the disconnects? You are paying for a connection, let's fix it? What error msg do you get? Do you have a router between the PCs & the modem? Is the router disconnecting from the modem? Is the modem disconnecting from the ISP? How old is the modem? Maybe you can demand a new modem.
