I would like to setup two broadband connections on my lan using vigor 2820, I already have two broadband connections in place and connected. I set them both to always on and users complained that the internet went slower. Both broadbands are from the same ISP.

What else do I need to do ?

Extra information
I have an internal email server which I have told to use WAN1 so it matches my Dns lookup.

In WAN -> General Setup, what did you set "Load Balance Mode" for each WAN? And what about your two broadband connection bandwidth packages?

You can also monitor traffic graph directly on your router or you can set it up with Smart Monitor from Draytek, but I recommend using PRTG to monitor Vigor 2820 via SNMP. You can see the example with 2910 over Internet in this tutorial (If you monitor in LAN, no need to do NAT like this, just from the add sensor step with your LAN 2820 Interface):

Hope it go right for you.
