RV042 can't sum upstream bandwidth

Hi to all,

since i've bought my RV042 CISCO (v3 hardware, firmware v4.1.1.01-sp Dec 6 2011 20:03:18) i wasn't able to let it work properly with my two DSL network llines.

I explain.

I got 2 DSL network:

1- PPPoE with authentication (MTU setted as auto) with upstream speed 4Mbit/S and downstream speed 5Mbit/s

2- Direct line with static IP with upstream speed 7Mbit/S and downstream speed 1Mbit/s

I was never able to SUM the two WAN using the LOAD BALANCE set.

I tried all combinations:

DSL 1 in WAN 1 or in WAN 2

DSL 2 in WAN 2 or in WAN 1

I've setted all type of speeds in WAN SPEED in Web Management

it seems that for some kind of reason it takes the upstream speed i can set in web management as the default value on which it decides to use the other WAN.

When i set low upstream bandwidth for DSL 2 it's able to sum the downstreams of both WANs but not the upstreams.

I wasn't ever abel to sum the upstreams?

How does it work?

Is there any workaround for this issue?

Thank you in advance

Frank

Fra,

Load balancing is used to balance traffic accroos both links not to utilize both links at once for the same traffic. For instance it can be setup to send PC 1 over one line and PC2 over the other, or you could send http over link one and https over link two. Once you start sending the same session over two links unless you are using virutual IPs or Virtual MAC's you will have session issues and drop packets.

Hope this helps.

Two thing

1 you "can add/sum" the bandwidth of your two wans if you use a peer to peer protocol like a torrent download. That will use connections on both wans and you can benefit from the added speed.

2 on system Managment ,bandwidth Managment , rate control, make a rule

All traffic for ip 192.xx.xx.xx to 192.xx.xx.xx upstream with speeds x y on Wan1 enabled

Should stop balancing one ip for all traffic or change the ports for specific outgoing traffic

Best luck

Thank you very much for your explanation Randy,

Could you please tell me how i set one DSL line to use for everything and the other one for use with a VPN (or https)?

Have a nice weekend
