    anyone knows or experience with multiple wan router?

    so i can use multiple internet connection with load balancing or fail-over.

    what is the cheap router to support this?
    preferably with linux inside.... off course...

    WAN connection


    If you are looking for static connections (lease line) then I would go for a cisco 2600, I am not aware of any linksys product that will take two dsl connections.

    Hope that helps?

    Linksys have two products with dual WAN functionality, provides load balancing and failover functions. One unit 2 WAN with 4 LAN ports and the other 2 WAN with 8 LAN ports . . . just do a google on "linksys RV082"

    Two off the most inexpensive have also been discontinued but can often still be found in stock because they are so specialized.

    After a bunch of fireware updates both of these should be good units.. I have not tired one my self but I have been researching these for a while

    By inexpensive these units should be found for under $200.. Almost all new models are much more expensive than this.

    One of the important features of these modles is that they can balence connctions from one PC accross both connections. Many other routers only load balance a single PC accross a single connection.

    The xincom units seem to have the best features / price ratio.. These units have been reviewed on Tomshardware and a few other sites.
