Are you using the same ISP for both connections? It'd also be interesting to see what happens if you have two different ISP's handing out their own local cache addresses for the likes of Google/Youtube etc... That would be easier though if both connections are with the same ISP/DNS server.

Umm.... Dat utube link dead fuzz?

Interested to see what happens when you hot 'fail' (ie unplug) one link while a download (not torrent) is in progress too... Does a software load balance 'fail over' or fall I've when it hits a hiccup... And what would it do if 1 line hit issues with noise/synch and dropped to 1mb instead??

Keen to stress test this setup Tim? :)

Might need better gear :)

I did test it and it just fails over to the other one. Really i need a network level way to load balance not software on windows.

pfsense is pretty good, I've used it before. The only reason I don't now is power consumption which I think someone else mentioned as well.

eXDee: What would you guys use as a setup for two combining two different types of connection - eg a very slow ADSL1 based connection, and a faster wireless link? I guess use the wireless link with DSL as failover?


How slow is very slow?

You could do that. Or you could have a little fun learning to split up certain traffic over each.

I know in my Mikrotik router I can put multiple default routes in and have the other activate when it can't ping the primary gateway. All the while still splitting different traffic ie: Youtube/Google over one and everything else over another etc... If one were to fail, the other default route would kick in and move all traffic to the working one etc...

could look at something small form factor, but ild say insuring peak load it doesnt peg could be a struggle on some of the lower end solution..

TimA doesnt seem to mind the extra power usage... so suppose it works!


personally i have only used pfsense for gatherings of friends, to cache content and control a few protocols from being bigfooting..

Get a Mikrotik!

You can do basic load balancing with just some static routes. But then you get a bit clever and use connection marking to make sure once a connection one of the wan's it always uses that wan. Then you go the next step further and use layer 7 rules to make applications go over the wan you want.
Much more flexibility than pfsense. I used to have pfsense running at home but have shifted to RouterOS (on the same x86 machine.
