Hi there everyone

In the office we are looking at providing a group of computers with a dedicated ADLS link whilst the rest of the office use the current ADSL link.

Looking at ideas in terms of a recommended Dual WAN router.  Have seen briefly NetGear FVS336G, Dynalink NB750 and Linksys RV042.  I presume each of these needs an external ADLS Modem.


Not really too worried about load balancing or fall over, but most important that both ares of the office are still on the same network (eg for network devices, sharing , Mail etc)

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Get it here:

ACtually, just had a thought (yes its taken a while :) )

Im thinking all I need to do is assign a different default gateway to the machines needing to use the 2nd ADSL connection and all should work, since I dont actually need any "load balancing"

Yeah, did the 2 routers and gateway assignment here for a while at home to let the flatmate access my shared media but still have their own internet connection. Worked ok, just put the gateway in the dhcp reservation for the appropriate computers.

then upnp came along and screwed it all up so the networks had to be seperated and a router between them.
