    I have a dual wan router.

    If you open only one connection, it uses one one of the 2, but if you use a download manager, it will use both lines at the same time, means, double speed.

    Usually, you set load balancing to 50%:
    Connection 1 = wan 1
    Connection 2 = wan 2
    Connection 3 = wan 1
    Connection 4 = wan 2
    and so on.

    A download manager, which opens 10 connections at the same time, uses 5 for wan 1 and 5 for wan 2.
    That means, if you download a file with a download manager, you have double speed.

    Unsa na nga klase nga router?

    In most cases, ang mahitabo ana kay mag load sharing ka. Dili pasabot nga 2 imong 1meg connection mahimong 2 meg.. but ma share lang ang load. Example, 1 ra imong DSL.. nya let's say 800kb imong average load daily. Kung 2 na imong DSL at 1 meg each, dayon mag load share ka, mahimo nalang 400k imong load on each WAN interface (assuming 800kb gyapon imong total load).

    Basically, gi tunga imong load by distributing the packets.. depending on the kind of metric you are using.

    Its like I described it.
    I have a Dual Wan router and know very well how it works.
    You can share the bandwidth by packets, bytes or percentage.
    If you select percentage 50/50, that means, the first connection established goes via wan1, the next via wan2, the next wan1 again and so on.
    If you use a download manager and download a file with 2 connections, you have the bandwidth of booth wan ports at the same time.

    Yup, i know.. ako lang gi explain nya nga di mahimong 2 meg iyang connection.. iyang orig nga question man gud kay ma 2 meg ba daw

    Load balancing is divided into 2, load sharing and redirecting. Load sharing is distributing transactions evenly to all connections, while the other one just redirects them to the next available connection. Akong explanation was about load sharing lang.. wa ko ni touch sa redirecting kay di kaayo ko mogamit ana.

    Katong connection 1 to wan 1 then connection 2 to wan 2 then connection 3 to wan 1 again then connection 4 to wan 2 again, that's redirection. Load-sharing is like this... connection 1 is automatically shared between wan 1 and 2, connection 2 again shared between 1 and 2 and so on.

    Other then the router itself, load balancing also depends on the kind of protocol used, either static or dynamic, either RIP, EIGRP, OSPF, IGRP for load sharing... or BGP for redirecting ('coz it selects only a single best path, but with some tweaking, can also perform load balancing).

    well said.. i agree... actully it realy depends on the trafic your router is requesting or sending you can achieve the 2meg speed if your router reach that request. Pero depende gaihapon sa imo dsl porvider kung dedicated gyud na 1 MB each imo connection

    Murag nindot mo nako eh invit sa amo luanching da... send you guys an invitation check your inbox.
