    DSL And Networking

    I have several 1.5MBps DSL lines that I'd like to load share. Now hypothetically, can't i just plug all those modems into a switch and then switch into my server/router then the server/router goes into the internal switch. So hypothetically shouldn't it work?

    Even if it doesn't load share, won't they all sorta share?

    I know it would work if I had a 4-port Cisco router but I can't get one of those just yet.

    perhaps.

    By "load share" do you mean:

    A) Whenever a connection is made, it is split evenly across lines in a "load balancing" function

    or

    B) Whenever a connection is made, it picks the "least trafficked" line and then travels over it.


    For A -> You need software to do it
    For B -> You need to setup your switch / router to do it.

    Option B is sorta what I'm going for.
