WAN Load Balancing - Overflow algorithm?



  • Greetings,

    I have 2 ADSL connections - one a 1Mbps and the other is 4Mbps. I've been observing the traffic graph whilst doing heavy downloading. I wonder, apart from the algorithm that has been introduced in 2.0BETA (member down, packet loss, high latency), could there be another one which does overflow? Thing is, I've been observing that the packets being routed 50/50 all the time, meaning to say the amount of traffic on both interfaces seem to be equal leaving the half of 4Mbps link unused .. or is it me with a bad configuration?



  • Just go under system->routing and for the gateway of your 4Mbps link choose a weight 4 which means 4 times faster factor in confront with the other one.
    That should fix your problem.
