  • Combining the power of 2 DSL connections...

    Alright, heres the situation. A friend next door is ordering DSL. He's sharing with his friend right next to him, 2 doors down from me, using 802.11b/g whatever.

    What we all want to do is combine my DSL and his DSL so it all shares the combined bandwidth. Now, My solution was to install NetBSD on a box with 3 NICs and be done with it, however, we cant exactly do that in this case. We want to do it wirelessly. Are there routers out there that access other access points and allow communication across the 2 networks, as if they were 1? I hope someone gets what I'm saying because I'm sure its kinda fragmented...

    Youd need to get a load ballencing switch to combine both DSL boxes to share the bandwith

            I'd have 2.

            After some other advice, I'm beginning to think this isnt possible over wireless...

              It should be, can't see why not, though the wireless dosn't do it, the switch/router does, the wireless dosn't even know what is going on the switch hides all that.

                He probably wants to link the DSL connections to a switch via wireless connections and then connect to computers to the switch via wireless so he doesn't have to run cables.

                  Two public IP's for the DSL, two privates going to the "out side" of the switch, 1 IP on the "in side" of the switch being the gateway for all the machines ?

                  And a whole load of secutiry and ballancing

                    Sure its possible,, what you need to do is combine the connections with a switch, then connect it to a router to be most effective..

                    There are Routers that do both,, are rather expensive though..

                        Yes but it has just one WAN port on it, correct?

                            This NexLand will resolve your issue IF both DSL modems are in the same area. It's possible if they are in separate buidlings, but too complicated / $ for the little gain in bandwidth that you will achieve...

                              We just want all 3 of us to be on the same network at this point. But now I want that Nexland router .
