Size Name: 2 WAN
I am glad Peplink came out with a low end home user dual wan router. I have tried two other brands and never could get them to work properly. I spent countless hours with settings and on tech support with both of these other noted brands. I plugged the Peplink in to both of my ISPs (one via cable and the backup via dsl) and it works. No fuss, no bothers with an inordinate amount of settings. I have not had a drop since I plugged it in (Cable ISP has been working on lines lately), although there does seem to be an issue with actual bandwith, I am not sure that is the router's fault but might be my cable ISP. I will update this if I find out otherwise.

It would be nice if there were a widget or monitoring method to see the throughput on both connections, but other than that I can't see too much more on how to improve it.

If your connection matters... I would suggest you give this a try. I personally cannot afford to have a disconnect during trading hours.

UPDATE: Also they sell a wireless bridge (Officeport) that you are able to manage from within your browser. They sell it from another company called Pepwave. It was worth getting for me since I was having difficulty connecting my DIR-655 (my previous router) as a bridge. I did not know about the other company and their products until I called the Peplink tech support trying to connect my previous router. Just thought this info might help a prospective purchaser.

UPDATE #2: It's now 06-07-2011 and this router is going strong. No problems whatsoever. I mention this since I came back to the product to link it for a friend who was having connection problems with his ISP.

Size Name: 2 WAN
We needed high availability in our home due to us working from home. We had DSL and although it's pretty stable, from time to time the TELCO (a large one in the South) would have outages. When experiencing one of these outages from the TELCO that my local DSL ISP couldn't resolve, the TELCO would take its sweet time getting to the issue; after denying it was them at all. So I added Comcast xFinity cable to go along with my DSL. I am no fan at all of Comcast, but I figure they both can't be down at the same time. Well, at least the odds are low for that scenario.

Having the 2 ISP inputs alleviated the worry of what to do if the DSL was to go down. The problem domain then shifted to my local network. I now had 2 wireless networks set up. The issue is if the DSL goes down, all machines in the house have to then switch to the network with the cable as its WAN. There had to be a better way.

Enter the Pepling 20. Within 20 minutes of receiving this unit, I had the cable on WAN 1 and the DSL on WAN 2 with my wireless router plugged into a LAN port on the Peplink. I set the cable as the priority WAN with the DSL as the failover. It works flawlessly. I disconnected WAN 1 and the router switched to WAN 2, connected via PPPOE, and user never knew the anything happened. I set it up so that I get an email and a text message that the WAN 1 connection went down and that WAN 2 was now connected. High availability at a SOHO cost.

I highly recommend!

Purchased this router for my network with two WAN links (Comcast and AT&T U-Verse). Tried several other routers, including a Fortinet 80C and a Netgear SRX5308. The Peplink was the only one that actually works.

Pros:
- Just works
- Very easy to set up
- Still provides all the meaningful configuration options
- User Interface is very easy to use
- User Interface is fast
- Exceptionally good status/monitoring, with real-time graphs make it easy to see what's going on
- Rich configuration options for multi-WAN routing make it easy to set up dependable multi-WAN links
- Clearly designed for up time, up to the little strap to make sure the power cord doesn't come out

Cons:
- Not too hard to max out with 3 consumer-class internet connections

Overall, very happy with my purchase. Will be purchasing another one for our office shortly.

I have owned this router for almost two years. Although expensive, it is worth every penny. I have it connected to my DSL and cable modems. I get incredible download and upload speeds. Skype works like a dream. And, I have had no problems whatsoever. The router setup is relatively easy. If you need a multiwan router the Peplink 30 is worth considering.

DSL is the only internet we can get at the house, as we live too far away for AT&T U-Verse or Cable Modem. After trying so long to figure out how to get faster internet, I thought I'd try to see about a second DSL connection. Sure enough, we could get another one. The next question was how I wanted to set it up - two separate networks, or one network. Ideally, I would want one network and somehow balance the connections. I did some research and found the PepLink Balance product, and figured I'd give it a shot so I ordered the PepLink Balance 30. THIS WORKS AS ADVERTISED. It's AWESOME! I plugged in both working DSL connections into it, and it really does an excellent job of load balancing. It does not combine the internet connection speeds to make it "super fast", but it does maximize the bandwidth you have. If my wife is streaming Netflix, it naturally has my tasks on the other DSL connection. If I am uploading two files, it uploads one file with the first DSL line, and the second file with the other connection. The interface for the router also is great, and it has live bandwidth stats with a graph, so you can really see what is happening. I previously had the Linksys E4200 (which I'm still using as a wireless router), but the interface on the PepLink Balance 30 is far superior. Overall, I highly recommend this to anyone who has more than one internet connection and is trying to maximize their available bandwidth.
