BR350 Load balance

I've got a place where I need to put twice the normal amount of bandwidth between two points. What I would like to do is have to bridges on both sides and load balance between the two of them. How would I go about this?

Re: BR350 Load balance

Mike you can do this with upto 3 pairs of bridges

Simply configure the 2 root bridges on different channels that are non overlapping, if you are going to use 3 pairs then ch 1 6 and 11

Then place a router or layer3 capable switch on either end and use routing to load balance accross the links

Router 1 e1 ------BR350 root ch 1 ---------radio link----BR350 --- e1 Router 2

e2-------BR350 root ch 6---------radio link----BR350-----e2

where e1 is interface ethernet1 and e2 is interafce ethernet 2 on both routers
