using a 2800 router to "load balance" traffic across multiple connections (diginet and ADSL) is nothing new. Clever marketing is all that it is.
A bit of an overkill as the cheaper 1841 could do it, but I suppose depends on number of lines and sustained throughput required.using a Cisco 2800 router splitting traffic based on protocol
Policy routing allows a co. to direct line-of-business traffic requiring guarenteed responses through the leased line, while nuisence traffic (e.g. staff browsing) can be 'load schedded' onto the ADSL.Why would a customer want a leased line and ADSL load balanced solution? I'm trying to understand but I can't.
News access is one of the applications that would benefit greatly from load balancing multiple ADSL (or other) lines, as most news servers allow multiple concurrent connections.Still means nothing for a home user like me that likes to d/l from news servers
