Load Balancing and Port Forwarding...

We are using an RV042 Linksys Modem (Firmware Version: 1.3.12.19-tm) at our location. The issue we seem to be having is that when we introduce a second WAN to the network, our Port Forwarding stops working on our Elastix Phone system and I'm sure other areas are affected as well but I can't be sure.

What is the common practice for load balancing two internet connections in a business environment?

Hi,

I am afraid there is no simple answer to your question as all businesses are different. I have set up load balancers as:
- failover
- round robin
- load balanced connections

It all depends on your needs.
If you have 1 fast, 1 slow connection you could do failover. With both equally fast you could do round robin or load balance.

If you have NAT in place, make sure it is set up on both interfaces, DNS records are updated appropriately.

Maybe I didn't make my question clear. How do I set up Load Balancing on an RV042 with two internet connections and have no problems with port forwarding?
