Multi-Wan with shared gateway - need simplified advice
I don't really want to bring a dead-horse back to life (well I do, but that's another story), but does someone have a simple solution advise for the old "multi-wan with 2 accounts from the same ISP with the same gateway"?
Our internet is provided by a WISP
We have 2 separate accounts to our place (provisioned via Canopy radios)
The account both share the same gateway; there is no option for other service levels; there are no other ISP options available.
There are no public IP's, non-available and the ISP doesn't even want to hear about it! (The joys of a duopoly and an area serviced by only one side of the duopoly!)
There was a discussion about routing one of the WAN lines through a router and then to the pfsense box. I know it's best to run a dd-wrt flashed router for this, and that's what I'll be doing, but does anyone have a favorite router to use?
If anyone of the gurus can chirp in and give a few points of sage advise, would be humongously appreciated!!
any nat router is fine (as long as it doesnt crash)
So noob question here, what is a NAT router vs a regular router? Is there a difference? Does dd-wrt change any router into a NAT router?
It might be personal preference, but any brand to recommend? It's a 20 minute hike up a hill to the com cabinet, and I don't like exercise :-)
any 20-100 dollar router does/can do NAT (network address translation).
there are, as far as i know, no consumer routers available, that DONT do nat out of the box.
i don't have brand to recommend
