Load balancing and bridging over 2 point-to-point T1s

I need to bridge two WAN sites. It was determined that one T1 is not enough and DS3 is too much. So we are looking at two point-to-point T1s. Lets say I buy two 2621XM with build in DSU/CSU (WIC-1DSU-T1). How do I go about implementing bridging and load balancing? Do I just make all interfaces (FE0, S0/0, S0/1) on both sides members of one bridge group? How would load balancing be handled in this case?

Thank you in advance

This is what I would use if I am to route on serial interfaces. Do you know how it works with bridging? I was not able to found this info so far.

Thanks

Hi,

I have not tested this, but putting all interfaces in the same bridge group and then assigning the same path cost (bridge 1 path-cost xxxx in interface configuration mode) might work.

Georg
