Load Balancing + Hotspot

Mon Mar 24, 2014 10:27 am

hello everyone,
I recently bought an RB2011 and I’m expecting my ISP to install a second connection.
Can I have the load balancing as well as hotspot setup on the same router?

Does it require special setup apart from the usual load balancing and hotspot setup? and if it does where can i read on them?

Thanks,
Max

I guess, no additional special configuration is required.
Give Karma if answer was useful.

I just wished you had a practical experience with such a setup but I'm glad you responded though.

Thanks

What type of load balancing would you do?
If PCC, it is possible, but a bit difficult, not to mention the using multiple gateways can disrupt some https website.

It would be better if you create 2 lans, then make gateway 1 as the default route for lan 1, then gateway 2 as the default route route for lan 2.

.
As a newbie, what do you think is the easier approach? If I get another RB to do the load balancing then connect it to my current router for the hotspot will it be much easier?

Can you point me to an appropriate link I can read that is suitable for a beginner?

Thanks.

This what I followed http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Load_Bala ... e_Gateways
Basically, you'll have two LANs each with its own ISP.
