I'm looking for a solution in order to connect some adsl connections. I know the Rv016 router which permits to connect up to 7 wan link but i need more, about 10-12 adsl connections. I need to increase my download bandwidth for my lan.
I heard about a solution using a switch with vlans and a router behind it, like on the attachment but i don't know how configure this.
My adsl connections are using pppoe authentication and they all have public static ip so i can make the pppoe authentication in the modems or in the router.
My idea is to set-up the modems in bridge mode with no authentication. In the switch, i assign a vlan per wan link and a trunk port between the swicth and the router. In the router, i deal with the pppoe authentication, i assume the NAT and the load balancing by using one route per wan link.
next point is router can have only a limited amout of parallel routes the take into account for loadbalancing.
if possible try also to cache some of the traffic. (proxys can do here a great work).
Symetric lines can also have a positiv effect on the traffic, the answer latency can be lower.
I am a little suprised that you can not get a higher line rate at you site, telcos do usualy anything for money, or maybe a vsat link is an option, or some kind of RF (Wireless) is a soulution, we operate with 400Mbit/s over 40 km.
But in any case it all depends on your budget and your traffic needs.
Thanks for your advice, i will read your document for choosing an appropriate router.
My captive portal already have a proxy (squid).
It's true for symetric lines and the latency but it's seems to me that i can't mix adsl and sdsl on the same router. With the load-balancing and the NAT, i have to make a choice: full adsl or full sdsl, do you confirm?
For the location, i'm in France, the installation is in a ski resort, so it's difficult to have higher line rate.
