Using two internets in tandom? - Page 3

Okay, found one. What should I do here? I can't take the splitter out because then I would have two male ends and nowhere to put them

Sorry for a bit of offtopic.

Could you please help with a solution for that.
I have two connections: ADSL and a dedicated optical one.
Both of these go down periodically, so I would like to be able to automatically switch them wherever it happens.
How do you advise to achieve that?
I need a simple solution, which doesn't have to be cheap.
I have a Cisco 1720 router, in case it can be used somehow.

I know how you could do it manually... but that's a no brainer

Not sure at all about automatic though... I think it's the kind of thing where almost nobody on this planet needs it so nobody has made such a thing.

You'll need a router that supports automatic rollover (I think thats the term, I'm looking right now...)

Edit: OK, here's a router that supports both Load Balancing and Failover (rollover).
There are others, you just have to search with the right terms:

http://www.netgear.com/Products/VPNa...rs/FVX538.aspx


Its a Dual WAN router.
You can set for Load Balancing (using both WAN connections at once) or for Failover/Rollover (automatically switching to the other connection when one fails to keep a constant connection.

We installed one of these at a customers business about 2 months ago, they haven't had any problems since. They have both DSL and Cable, and always, one would go down at some point and they'd have to manually switch over to the other. So, we installed this sucker and they haven't called since.

You'll need to use a coupler to connect the 2 together:
It'll look something like this:
Coupler @ RadioShack

They also come in gold. CHEAP anywhere you find them

Oh, I see. Well, I'd have to convince my dad to let me mess with it since he runs his buisness on this internet and he might not be so willing.

But do you think there will be a speed increase? We already get over the rated download speed, and upload is right on the mark of the rating.

Anytime you remove a split from the line, you'll usually end up with a minor increase...

Usually if you're getting what you've paid for, no real reason to change it.
If you were getting a bad connection, then I'd really suggest it.

For the two internet thing, couldn't you bridge the two and set the IP addresses yourself. Get the details on both, then set the IP address of your cable on the bridge, and on the 'alternet configuration' set it for what the wireless was?

You might need to disable your lan to get the correct settings for the wireless though. I'm not sure if this would work, but might be worth a shot. If it doesn't give an increase, it would at least give fault tolerance , if your cable went down it should just switch to the wireless.

Here's something about that, but on Linux, in Windows, probably possible too, but I'd have to look some more:
http://tetro.net/misc/multilink.html

You can't really "increase" the speed by using 2 connections, but you could dedicate a connection to a particular app / port. (Torrents on one, reg. browsing on another etc...)

Ok, load balancing in WinXP:
Don't really know how well this one will work:
http://www.pctools.com/guides/registry/detail/951/

There are also tons of software for load balancing, try one if you want.

Thank you.

First, I've made a search on those keywords and found a Linksys router, which has these capabilities as well. Since all my equipment is of that manufacturer, I'll probably buy it.

Second, I've found a way to make it with Linux, and I'll try that first, since I have some older boxes lying around.

Thanks again, you've helped me a lot.
