Bandwith definition



  • Hi,

    My situation is as shown below:
                                                                                                              ___ Wifi1
    ISP1(CABLE-DHCP)–-(512/4MBPS)--+-------+      |------------|              /
                                                    | RV082  +----|  PFSENSE  |---(LAN)--+---- Wifi2
    ISP2(ADSL-PPOE)----(512/6MBPS)--+-------+      |------------|                ___ Wifi3

    Two ISP connected to a RV082 Linksys router one 512KB/4MB and the other 512KB/6MB, the RV082 makes Round Robin load balance.
    My question is what upload and download speed must I set on Traffic Shaper, the sum of both? 1MB/10MB (or a little less) or something different.
    Both ISP connections are PPOE with dynamic IP, so here is my second question, If connect directly both ISP to PFSense, only one could be PPPOE? and the other could be static IP provided by the RV082 router?, it's possible to load balance in that situation?

    Thanks for your Help
    Regards, Alfredo



  • The traffic-shaper is (currently) not able to shape multiwan.
    If you take a look at the bounty forum you'll find a thread about changing that.



  • I konw that shapper will not accept multiwan is this version, I sent my bounty for this, but the multiwan is managed by the RV082 not by pfsense, is the same limitation?



  • what velocity did you get from within your lan when you download any file? the sum of the two links? I think you must use that velocity in trafic shaper.

    hope it helps.



  • Many thanks for your HELP the max speed i can Get for a single connection is 6MBPS, but if I can have many users downloding files simultaneously, other users can get data from the other wan, so i some case the max speed could be up to 10MBPS (4+6).

    My dilema is, if I set up the speed to 4 o 6 MBPS, ¿I will never get the sum 10 MBPS (4+6)? in the other situation if I set the speed to 10MBPS ¿could te shaper take a wrong decision assigning bandwith?

    Thanks

    This is absolutely true!

    However I am using it with "downstream=sum of downloadspeeds of all wans" and "upstream=uploadspeed of wan" at the office. It's not the optimum but the best that you can do in 1.2 and multiple interfaces currently.



  • Thanks Hoba,

    I'll try this untill new traffic shaper is ready.

    Saludos
