aDSL Load Balancing Problem with NAT(?)

i have tried to configure LoadBalancing to use it for DSL lines.

First, i want to do it in the LAB where there are no adsl modules so i used 3 2801 and connect them with fastethernet.

I saw an old discussion so i only configured 3 things:

a)Globally IP cef (default)

b)2 ip routes: ip route faste 0/0 and

ip route vlan5

c)ip nat with route map:

route-map conn1 permit 10

match interface FastEthernet0/0


route-map conn2 permit 10

match interface Vlan5


ip nat pool connection2 netmask

ip nat pool connection1 netmask

ip nat inside source route-map conn1 pool connection1 overload

ip nat inside source route-map conn2 pool connection2 overload


i had to use vlan 5 because it is the on;y way the 4-port switch module can act as point-to-point interface.

Seperately it works fine: i shut on interface it works, i shut the other it works. When both are up, only one is performing nat.

Any ideas?

Try to change the default routes to point on the next-hop IP instead of the outgoing interface, like that:

IP route

IP route


IP route F0/0

IP route Vlan5
