I have two ISP uplinks that I would like to configure in a load balance configuration. Which ports are best to be used for the ISP uplinks, and which for the LAN configuration?
RB1100AHx4 has other diagram. In this model all ethernet ports are plugged into a switches via transformers. So there is no difference in this case, all ports are equal...Captura de pantalla 2017-08-09 a la(s) 10.23.49.png
Typically, ether11 and ether12, as they're out of the switch chips (better for LAN) and have direct CPU connection.
Not exactly... In this case, optimal ports would be ether11-13 leaving one unocuppied if possible; rationale: they won't be sharing as many ports (5) into the 2,5Gb/s switch chip uplink towards the CPU as it happens with ether1-5 or ether6-10.So there is no difference in this case, all ports are equal...
