I have the following situation,
I have a hap ac lite and I would like to use 2 lte usb dongles. They will be connected via a powered usb hub so power is not a problem
I get the HAP to recognize each dongle separately with out issues (they come up as LTE1 and LTE2).
With one plugged in everything works internet works fine ans does the hotspot etc
The problem comes in that they are Huawei 3772 and are Hylink enabled (changing firmware to ppp is not an option). They act like Ethernet interfaces and have their own dhcp server and nat.
If I plug in both they both have the same IP address. There is no way to change this (as far as I can tell). Both come up with 192.168.8.1 (they do have different mac address).
Is there a way that the HAP can do load balancing in this scenario?? The reason to do load balancing is that the data plans are for 100gb/month and typical use would be about 150gb/month.
With load balancing there is a shot that I can get to the end of the month without having the bandwidth go to 100k (typical 4g is 20M) and then going through the hassle of topping up with more data.
Maybe using metarouter to isolate or some other way.
I need to use LTE because there is no other way to get data where I am at (Rural)
Any help is appreciated
