Is there a way to aggregate separate POTS ADSL lines? We are a small camp in a remote location, and our single ADSL line is not enough, but T-1's to our location are expensive. Could we purchase additional ADSL lines (at ~$50/month) and then aggregate them with a Cisco device at the front of our network, so that all clients seemlessly have access to the full sum of the bandwidth?
You can aggregate using Multilink-PPP but that requires that your provider supports it. However you should ask them also if they guarantee that both connections will always connect to the same provider's router or if not, then they should support multi-chassis multilink PPP.
