I have a DI-LB604 Load Balancing Router, and I use to load balance my two internet connections, the sky and globe broadband. After setting up plugging in two connections at two WAN ports, then distributing connection to another switch then to our workstations, we are experiencing down internet connections. Is there any other setting I used to configure in order for this device to perform properly?
Load Balancing Router and Switch Distribution
I now the solution of your problem you can check it and it must be helpful for you. There are many other devices those are working for load balancing and switch distribution for using or providing internet to multiple users. One of the best devices in the market which working much better and troubleshooting the problem load balancing is Cisco express forwarding.
For it with fast switching, it must be clear that use path for multiples which is given for a single guaranteed packet. If you use traffic destined for different pairs it should to take a different path. While in case of per-packet path utilization for load balancing is much better because it allows to router to send successive data packets over the paths without any individual hosts etc.
The method which is used by it is round-robin which clarify the path to take the destination. For multiple links Cisco express forwarding uses those paths having information in the ip routing table to balance the traffic. for additional information or to set router's path see in detail here.
