Load balancing 2x WAN on same FTTH gateway

Wed May 15, 2019 6:23 pm

I see a lot of topics about load balancing multiple WAN, but has anyone have any experience with load balancing 2 FTTH (fiber to the home) connections from the same IPS and therefore probably on the same gateway?
I know routers from other vendors like Ubiquiti have problems with 2x WAN on the same IPS gateway.
And if one connection is 500/500mbps and the other 200/200mbps will I have a 700/700mbps connection?

Thanks

Mischa

Multi-WAN with same gateway works as described in this thread.
Regarding the resulting bandwidth, you will have 700/700-ish with multiple flows while one flow cannot be greater than the WAN link it is assigned to.
Look at the examples in this manual page.

Same gateway address for multiple connections is possible with gateway=<address>%<interface>.
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.
