    I have 3 NIC in my new zeroshell box:

    ETH00 – Has 6 VLANs and is connected to a Cisco 2960XL switch – all vlan and internet traffic works as expected.

    ETH01 – Shaw Cable connection plugged directly into the modem and is assigned a dynamic IP from shaw.

    ETH02 – Plugged into an ASDL modem

    ppp0 – PPOE connection through ETH02 (statically assigned IP from service provider)

    I had just ETH01 (Cable) plugged in, everything was fine. When I added the PPOE connection, it replaced the cable connection as the default gateway. Everything works fine now on the ADSL connection.

    What I want to do is set ETH01 (Cable) as the primary connection (metric 2) and have the ppp0 (ADSL) as a load balance/failover, as well as force one particular port to use ADSL.

    As soon as I enable Net Balancer, I lose my internet on all interfaces and vlans.

    I am assuming I am missing some basic important step. All of the diagrams and articles i have seen seem to have a router before the zeroshell box. My goal is to get rid of all the extra routers, is this necessary? or am I missing another step? I am guessing I need to make a change to the default gateway, but I would think that the whole point of net balancer is that it would do that.

    I am booting off 1.0.beta14

    My routing table:
    Destination Netmask Type Metric Gateway Interface Flags State Source
    209.205.86.75 255.255.255.255 Host 0 none ppp0 UH Up Auto
    192.168.6.0 255.255.255.0 Net 0 none ETH00 vlan 6 U Up Auto

    192.168.250.0 255.255.255.0 Net 0 none VPN99 U Up Auto
    192.168.222.0 255.255.255.0 Net 0 none ETH00 vlan 3 U Up Auto
    70.74.84.0 255.255.252.0 Net 0 none ETH01 U Up Auto
    DEFAULT GATEWAY 0.0.0.0 Net 0 none ppp0 U Up Auto

    Result of failover test in net balancer log:
    11:04:11 ==============================================================
    11:04:11 +++ Testing across the gateway ADSL (Interface: ppp0) +++
    11:04:11 [204.244.227.254] : Success (Round Trip Time: 127 ms)

    11:04:14 ==============================================================

    I have added 2 gateways to the gateway list:

    ppp0 weight 1
    ETH01 weight 2

    I have ETH01 and ppp0 in my NAT table.

    I think you have to use static ip’s in the netbalancer, not device names (which would be easier)..
