    Here is a good post about VPN bonding with zeroshell:

    I am planning to try the Broadband Bonding boxes by Mushroom for our T1 and ADSL line, as there is no simple way to deal with the latency difference on T1 and ADSL, round robin won’t cut it…

    Great tutorial houkouonchi! I also heard that this may have issues (as you also point out in your video) that with latency being different on the WAN links causing reordering and reducing performance. Did you ever try to bond a T1 and a 6Mbps DSL line? I wonder if that will work or will the latency difference just kill it?

    I heard good things about the Broadband Bonding routers by a company named Mushroom Networks (funny name 😆 ), which I believe also are based on Linux that accomplishes VPN bonding over varying latency WAN links. Rather than using round robin, it dynamically adjust the scheduling algorithm to get around the latency issues. I am thinking going that route as we don’t get Fios here and T1 and DSLs are our only options.

    If your ISP is not allowing MLPPP (which is fairly common), then you have 2 options.

    1) Load balancing: This can be done by multi WAN routers. This will provide some reliability and some capacity increase, but you will not get increased speed.

    2) Broadband Bonding: This is a new technology that enables bonding of Internet lines (not only DSL) from any service provider by using layer 4 algorithms. You can google the term “broadband bonding” for more information about the solutions in the market.
