Load Balancing, 2 ADSL Routers, 1 WAN Interface, 1 LAN Interface



  • Hi,

    I have a pfSense box with only two interfaces. On the WAN interface I have connected a switch with two routers, one with 192.168.1.1 and other with 192.168.1.2

    On the other interface I have LAN network 192.168.10.0/24

    I have configured two gateways, 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 and put default gw as 192.168.1.1.

    Then I grouped those gw on a group named ADSLs and set a rule on the firewall to use ADSLs as the gw.

    But the traffic is always going through 192.168.1.1, even if I set the firewall rule to use gw 192.168.1.2 instead of ADSLs

    Is this configuration possible without VLANs? How?

    Thanks.



  • Actually in pfsense it is NOT possible to do LoadBalancing with connections on the same subnet.
    Not sure if you can create a VirtulIP on WAN so you can connect to two different subnets.



  • Thanks, I will try then to get a VLAN switch or another box with more space to put 3NICs



  • Hi,

    a VLAN swiktch should work. Perhaps you can buy a DUAL- or QUAD-port NIC
