Tomato (Shibby) on Linksys E3000 as Dual WAN

    I have been using my shibby Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-101 K26 USB Big-VPN build on Linksys E3000 (converted from WRT610n v2).

    I have a DSL modem connected in bridge mode to the WAN (RJ45) port on the router. I also have a (Huawei) USB EV-DO internet device from the same ISP which can be hooked up to the router USB port and the router can then be configured to use the EV-DO internet connection.

    So out of hunch, I just wanted to ask that can this build on this router act as a Dual WAN Router. Is it possible to combine two available internet connections, maybe as a combined pipe for maximum throttling, or for load balancing or as a fall back connection to each other.

    Just fancied this idea from an coming soon software at http://www.connectify.me/dispatch/ which promises to do the same thing at the software level, but it would be configured at each individual PC. So if somehow the same idea can be made working at the router level, then the whole network can enjoy increased bandwidth.

    Maybe shibby or toastman can shed some light...

    Sorry if it was a stupid thought anyways....

    Keep up the good work.
