    I'm looking into running a Cisco RV016 with the load balancing option enabled to primarily increase our upload speed.

    We've got access to ADSL2+ in our area which is great for download speeds but the the upload maxes out at about 1.5mb/s. What I'd like to is combine 4 of the ADSL2+ lines to get a upload speed of 5-6mb/s from a PC that is streaming HD video.

    I'm new the idea of load balancing so am not sure if the upload bandwidth can be combined this way?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    No, the RV series will not allow you to "combine" multiple DSL lines to achieve higher speeds for a single PC.

    It will help multiple PCs utilize the services more efficently by simulataneiously spreading their traffic over those lines.

    I think what you want is "DSL Bonding" and would require special equipment and co-operation with your ISP.
