asked on

ADSL bonding


I have two ADSL lines and Internet from BT. I asked for a bonded services, and they said they do a "shared line", which apparently was the same thing, however all they sent was two separate modem/routers for each line. I tried using a dual ADSL modem Nexsuslink 5631, which I got left over from BE, but from what I could make out from the settings it requires that I use the same credentials for both lines, which BT cannot do.

Can I make the Nexuslink 5361 work wiyth the 2 BT lines?

If not, is there a router that would allow me to bond the two lines to achieve higher speed, not just load balancing or failover?

If all else fails, would the Draytek 2920 be a good option for a load balancing solution? Any other recommendations?

Thank you!

Thanks, I was afraid that might be the case.

Would load sharing or load balancing be better in my case - I have two equal speed ISP lines and multiple clients. For load balancing I am leaning towards Draytek Vigor 2920 or 2925n.

What device would I need to use for load sharing, if that is the better option?
