Load balance two unequal links

Mon Oct 24, 2005 5:24 pm

Hello to all,

Untill now, I have done some load balancing with equal cost paths, but is there a way in mikrotik ver 2.9.2 to load balance two unequal paths, something like playing with weights for example, I have one link with 2 Mbps and another one 1 Mbps, and I want to use full capacity of both links totla 3 Mbps, my mikrotik is configured with three interfaces:
eth1 : x.x.x.x - WAN1
eth2 : y.y.y.y - WAN2
eth3 : z.z.z.z - LAN

Best regards.

Add the 2 mb gateway in twice e.g

0.0.0.0/0 x.x.x.x
0.0.0.0/0 x.x.x.x
0.0.0.0/0 y.y.y.y

where x.x.x.x is the 2 Mb and y.y.y.y is the 1 meg

This will create an approximate 33 / 66 load balance split

Hope this helps!

Thanks very much it worked,
What I did after I configured interfaces with certain IP's, the next thing was:
ip route add gateway=x.x.x.x,y.y.y.y,y.y.y.y

with this I've got the traffic ratio 1/3

Regards
