2 bugs in Outbound Multi-WAN Load Balancing with Gateway Groups
I've used Gateway Group for "Outbound Multi-WAN Load Balancing" according to http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,10407.0.html
I have 2 uneven ADSL links: 128kbps + 512kbps.
So I need to create 4 gateways with identical IP, but get error:
* The gateway IP address "xxx" already exists
I created 2 gateways with different gateways IPs but with identical monitor IP and get error:
* The monitor IP address "yyy" is already in use. You must choose a different monitor IP.
But I really need to check links against the same public IP!

Neither one of those are bugs. You can't use the same monitor IP on multiple gateways, and you can't use the same gateway IP on multiple interfaces.
Oh, on the first, we do need to bring back a way to accommodate unequal balancing.
You can't use the same monitor IP on multiple gateways.
I have both gateways to the same ISP and I want use his main router as monitor IP on both gateways…

Because of how routing works.
This is not a pfSense specific problem.
Behind the scene a static route for each monitor IP to it's respective gateway is created.
You cannot create a static route for the same IP to multiple gateways.
