Has anyone tried some multi WAN routers like this along with KWF??
http://www.micronet.info/Products/adsl/SP890.asp

It's a multiwan router. I need two internet connections to be able to sum up bandwidth (in Uruguay the biggest DSL is 512/192 Kbps)and it is not enough for a lot of medium sized networks.

Can one of this routers be used for the load balancing of both DSL and then connect to the KFW box? For what tech support say, one default gateway is a limitation of Windows OS. The solution that KWF provides is a Clustering of Windows servers with loadbalancing and 2 KWF running, which is too expensive.

Doesn't such a load balancing device offer itself to the LAN as 1 gateway and do the load balancing all by itself? Like: from the LAN you only see 1 internet gateway and the gateway itself distributes the load over 2 WAN interfaces?

With such a device your set with just a single KWF... I suppose such devices exist.

For the info I read in micronet, yes the lan sees it as only one gateway with one IP and the router makes the load balancing.
Apparently it can't add both WANs (you can't download in one session at 1 Mbit with to Wans of 512) but there can be 2 streams of 512 at the same time.

I want to use the load balancing of one of these routers along with the security and features of KWF.

What you are descibing is called 'line aggregation' (getting one TCP or UDP conection two use both WAN's). This can never be achieved from 'your end' only. You would allways need support from your ISP for this, since on his end he also needs to recombine both data streams.

Load balancing (distributing several connection over several lines) is all you could hope to achieve, I am afraid.

As the previous post said, load balancing is ISP independent. In fact, where I live "corporate Internet access" is so incredibly expensive many places are getting one 256K or 512K corporate line, and then one or more "for home use" lines at 1.5 or 4 Mbps and load balance them. The links can be from different ISP's, and you can set rules as to which sites go to which ISP.

To the user (or KWF) it is completely transparent since it's all done on the router.

Nope, you just need to buy a load balancer...

Well, the link is three years old. I have two of the Micronets working with two AdSL and KWF since then.

Just a notice, Kerio is also busy on implementing Link Load Balancing in the next KWF version.

You could try it out see: http://www.kerio.eu/beta_section.html
