ECMP Using The Same Gateway Address

Fri Jul 21, 2006 12:40 pm


I have looked through the forums and this topic keeps coming up. However people seem to end up having to sidestep it as no solution is found.

I have a small WISP in Ireland. I am currently feeding it with dual ADSL lines from the same company. They only have two subnets so now I want to add a third I am in a jam. SURELY Mikrotik can be made to load balance over these two lines. Its not a physical impossibility.

I would have thought you could tell them apart with the IP address given by the PPPOE session?

Can anyone suggest what to do? There was talk about fiddling with the ARP tables but I think my ISP is using some advanced IP scheme as the following DHCP result shows:

IP Address =
Subnet =
Gateway = ????
