Does anyone use bonded ADSL connections on here? If so is it any good.
We are limited with budget and lne quality so we can only get 512kb so I would like to bond two together or use a load balanced ADSL router.
I have Smoothwall with a built in ADSL modem which runs nicely and does all my filtering so I would need to work out how to connect everything without making it 4 hops to get on the internet.
I know theres a Linux version that does it but it looks like it only supports certain modems.
I looked into this a while back but we didn't proceed with it (LEA politics).
I don't think their are major problems with it - you have built in failover, except the lack of upload speeds and any other DSL specific problems.
There is a free linux version:
I know that linux doesn't support all the 'winmodem' types.
Cisco also do a router that can be set-up for bonded ADSL connections.
It might also be worth speaking with smoothwall about this or checking their forums.
