Hi All,

I hope you are doing great.

I have 2 wireless links, one gives 50mbps and the other one is less i.e. 32mbps.
What I want to do is Balance-tlb so that I can get total speed of both links and also get fail-over. Which mikrotik router/switch do you suggest?
I dont want to do balance-rr as it will give me lesser speeds.

Please help.

Regards

Following is the actual setup what I will setup.

Mikrotik R1 eth1 ---->(wireless link 10mbps) ----> Mikrotik R2 eth1
Mikrotik R1 eth2 ---->(wireless link 20mbps) ----> Mikrotik R2 eth2

I want to bridge links so that I can get 30mbps.
What should I chose, obviously balance-rr wont work. Should it be balance-alb or balance-tlb.
What I require i.e. 30mpbs can this really happen?

And what mikrotik router should I use?

Regards

This is the reply i got from Mikrotik Support.

The balance-alb/tlb is RouterOS feature which is supported in all RouterBoard devices and there should not be problems achieving 30Mbps throughput with any of them.

nice reply, waited for that for days... :)

Maybe pulling one VLAN trough the slower link and two VLANs through the faster link.
Then make a 3x bonding out of all three VLANs.
That would make up for a 2:1 load balancing, which roughly meets the 50/32 ratio.
