Hi, all

I currently have an iBurst connection that I route my small business network through (via SBS). Recently they have become not as reliably in bandwidth and uptime as I have got used to (4 hrs down time it 2 years is what the record was, the last two months, down 3 times each about 4 hrs).

So I started thinking about getting a router like a Linksys or Netgear, and connecting the HSDPA - only thing faster than iBurst) to the second WAN port.

Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with this?

It is possible to do (but I am not sure whether the routers have iBurst support yet). PM Snormossel and ask him as he will know what brand and make of router to purchase.

I think some of the routers can make a PPPOE connection. That should work for iBurst.

Billion, Draytek and I believe D-Link all have ADSL (think PPPoE) routers with USB ports that support 3G devices. Whether or not they will support your iBurst modem I can't say for sure.

Just in case some else want to do this, this is what has been recombeaned. The following products situation:

• BIGUARD 30 LITE - for load balancing & a
• 7402GXL - for the HSDPA connection

Thanks Billion and Nology and all other posts:)

Will report back once I get it up and running
