I have a Dryatek 2830 connected to Easynet (ADSL, 5mbps) and VirginMedia (50mbps cable).
The Easynet connection provides a VPN to the office, so I need it on, but the Virgin connection is much faster, so I want to use that for everything else.
I have used the load balancing option to set the IP for the VPN server as the only IP to use WAN1 (Easynet) and all others to go via WAN2 (Virgin).
I have used both tracert and VisualRoute top check it, and lo, when i give it the VPN server name, the route goes via Easynet, and any other name I enter shows up as routed via Virgin.
BUT... when I then fire up IE and go to www.speedtest.net
and check the speed it shows up as having connected via Easynet. The speed confirms this. If I disable WAN1 (Easynet) then it does go via WAN2 (Virgin) as expected.
I have no idea why tracert and VisualRoute both show my load balancing working, but as soon as I use Internet Explorer it seems to ignore it?
