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.Read more ›
I work from my home, and must have reliable Internet access. For the last few years, I have had both a Comcast connection, and an AT&T U-verse connection just for that reason.
Now, I must say that the Comcast connection is superior to the AT&T U-verse connection, so I just left AT&T not connected to my router as a back-up that I could use, by swapping cables, should my Comcast connection go down.
I was recently looking for a dual WAN router, and was reading the reviews for a Linksys box that had multi-WAN capability (the reviews were mostly not positive) when I came across one that mentioned the the reviewer had solved his multi-WAN quest with the Peplink Balance series.
Peplink? Strange name. Never heard of them.
But I read the reviews, which were almost all very positive, and I thought I would try the Balance 20 to see how it works. Well, the other positive reviewers are correct, this box does the job.
However, you must understand that it cannot "bond" your two Internet connections into one big pipe (except in the case of an end-to-end VPN connection). What it can do, is to balance the demand for Internet usage over your two connections.
But it does not just indiscriminately balance the demand between the two connections. In my case, it generally favors my Comcast connection, since it is faster. Only should my Comcast connection get a lot of usage which would make it slower than my AT&T connection, will it then start sending over the U-verse connection. And, if a connection fails, it will, without you noticing, use the other connection.Read more ›
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!
I work in marketing for a very large high-tech company selling very expensive test and measurement equipment to engineers. I know the value of customer service can make or break loyalty. Peplink gets it, too. Though they are not the most common "name" in routers, I'm now recommending folks give them a look.
