    Hello! Desperately seeking info. We have two TDS xData lines, each with their own Linksys (WRT54G) and Linksys (BEFSR41) and need to have both hooked into a network of Windows/linux pcs. I can go out one, but can't get to the networked pcs, or go out the other (switching cables connected) but not find the network.

    Any suggestions?

    i have the same issue but i was unable to find a viable solution
    without using another machine to route both lines.

    the basic idea is that you wont ever get double data speed unless you buy a router that can do the trick cisco has some that can probibly do it but thay are $$$$. what you can do is set up a linux box or if you got money to burn windows server.
    to do network load balancing that will give much better performance to multiple clients. but it is not able to utilize both lines for a single host.

    this is as good as i could do. since i have quite a few postings in the threads that i started so search for multilinking and connection on this forum and maybe you could make heads or tails out of them

    As stated you need a load balancing router. Linksys do some, the best model being the RV082, as do Xrio, Cisco, Nexland, etc.
