Load Balancing issue
After failing all the attempts to configure two PPPoE links on pfsense (WAN and OPT1) I found a workaround.
Below diagram explains my workaround solution.My ultimate goal is to load balance using both the internet links.In order to achieve load balancing I have add gateway group (See attachment: GW-Groups.JPG) and add firewall rule on the LAN interface (See attachment:Firewall rule for Load Balacing.JPG)
I am using this Pfsense Box as the gateway for my LAN to provide internet access to users.
I can see traffic is utilizing both the connections from the traffic graph, But when I disconnect One link load balancing is not happening. For some users connection internet is gone and when reconnect the link its not returning normal state.
Please help find out where the issue is

Both modems have the same IP ? (192.168.2.1)
WAN IP Address, Gateway & Subnet Mask
OPT1 IP Address, Gateway & Subnet Mask
Also a screenshot of :
"System: Gateway Groups"
If you can "put" your Modems in "Bridge" mode, is better…
If you are on 2.0.1, you can use 2 PPPoE connections with same GW, just need to change the GW Monitor IP to one of the PPPoE connections.
» Added patch to mpd to allow multiple PPPoE connections with the same remote gateway
WAN Modem IP (192.168.2.1)
OPT1 Modem IP (10.2.2.1)
WAN IP Address(192.168.2.2/24) , Gateway (192.168.2.1/24)
OPT1 IP Address (10.2.2.2/24), Gateway (10.2.2.1/24)
