Dual Wan/Load Balancer Questions... 2*24=48?

TP-Link TL-R470T+

Does anyone know if the above router could do load balancing to utilise two 24mb lines for shared upload/download through torrents and multiple connection ftp/http servers so the overall speed would be 48mb or would it treat it as a single ip/port system and then only use one line but keep the other free for other traffic (skype/xbox live/port 80/smtp)?

If not could someone point me in the direction of a low budget solution...

If that is not capable then I did wonder about these...

I doubt it. About all you can do is use one connection for streaming, normal use, and then another line for your torrenting.

Look into bonding with Zeroshell. This guy bonded 2 FiOS connections for a 150/75Mbps connection.

For now I will go with the budget router and modems I think and will look into a decent zeroshell build when I have more funds available.

Cheers for the comments/insights guys!

well since torrents download a lot of little files from different people you would be able to get 48mb over them but as far as a regular file you would still be limited to 24mb.

Don't confuse load balancing and bonding. Load balancing is there to provide redundancy (think two different ISP's in case one is down) and to provide multiple paths for your WAN bound traffic to take if one of the connections is being heavily used. Bonding will do exactly what it sounds like, bond two connections from the same ISP together to provide a faster connection.

i understand that but with load balancing you can download 2 files, 1 on each connection, at the same speed. a torrent is made up of several files from several places so you can in effect download 1 torrent at 48mb with that setup.

In the end I found a old P4 machine (free from the closet!) and two PCI nics, I'll be giving zeroshell a whirl with two TP-LINK 8616's...
