WAN1 and WAN1PPP
In USGxxx is it possible to configure separately WAN1 and WAN1PPP with two different internet providers and let them use as 2 different interfaces?
I was thinking I can connect the lan cables coming from 2 providers into a switch and then with a lan cable into USG P1 port... does it make sense? Does it work?

It should be possible, give it a try.
I'm currently having one ISP connection through wan1_ppp however at the same time I'm using wan1 to access my VDSL modem config pages. This setup is pretty much what you're asking for. There are some limitations, for example both wan1 and wan1_ppp will be both in same security zone so you won't be able to do some granular fiewalling rules should you need to.
Thanks for answer! So, I'll give it a try... I'm looking for a way to implement a third wan but WITHOUT upgrade to a USG200 which has a OPT port configurable as 3rd wan...
Because one of my wan is a PPP, and because third wan could be a normal wan, I was asking if anyone did it before mixing PPP together with regular wan.

Wow guys. I had never occurred to me that these seemingly connected functions could be operated as independent functions.
In my USG50 setup connected to two PPPoE FiOS/FAST ONTs, WANs get their IP addresses from the ISP, and the PPPoE portions run in a (presumably ZyXEL determined) 10.X.X.X subnet.
So what happens when two different ISPs are connected through a switch to P1, say? Does the PPP ISP source automatically get connected to the WANPPP connection because that is the logical connection that offers the PPP exchange? And as a result, do the WAN and WANPPP connections receive separate ISP-determined IP addresses, as I imagine they would have to to be able to receive responses to outgoing messages? What happens in the menu and in fact for establishing dual (now triple or potentially quadruple) WAN load balancing?

I have to admit that as Kirby, it did not occur to me and I did not fully understand how this could be accomplished. But then I realized I was inadvertently performing that task because I have my modem's set to bridge mode and had not changed or removed the the WAN addressing from when I had to do PPTP between the router and the modems.
When I changed my modems to bridge I was still able to log into the modems. Then through an education by another member I realized I really no longer needed that addressing when using bridge mode. With that addressing not in place I cannot see my modems.
But my concerns are the same a Kirby does it create any concerns not already mentioned.
