Our office of 40 employees has two internet connections: a fractional T1 (1.5Mbps up, 1.5 down) and an ADSL (386Kbps up, 6Mbps down). I have our RV082 configured in load balancing mode. Most of the high-bandwidth upstream protocols are bound to the T1 (FTP, SMTP, etc). HTTP is bound to the DSL in order to give users the fastest download experience.
Things get fouled up when users attempt to upload via http (for instance, Youtube, Facebook, and Yousendit.com). Since the router recognizes the traffic as HTTP, it sends it up the very slow DSL line. Not only does the user experience long upload times, but downstream http traffic effectively grinds to a halt, due to the nature of ADSL (maximum download speed while uploading is 386kbps).
Currently, I deal with this situation in two very low-tech ways: I bind specific machines that do a lot of http uploading to the T1, and I ask employees to contact me before uploading via http (ironically, the only time anyone ever contacts me is when they're uploading via ftp!).
I was wondering if anyone has a recommendation on how to deal with this using the RV082. Am I missing a major concept here? Or is this simply the nature of the RV082?
I would recommend you first to block the upload traffic using the firewall
1 Go to Firewall -> access rules 2. add new Rule 3. action = deny 4. Service = selected the service 5. Source Interface = Wan1 6. Source ip = single [i input the ip address that the request will come from] 7. Destination ip = single [i input the ip address of wan1]
And then you could balance the bandwidth following the instruction on the next link:
