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?

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.

  • Intermittent connection often encountered when there are 3rd party equipment involved. Such as adding additional networking device on the current loop you have.
  • This is a common issue with networking, when router or switch is added then you'll experienced problem with Internet connection.
  • Work around with this is a simple reset or a sequenced power cycle. This is the most tested and proven solution to this issue. It'll make the 2 devices communicate properly and eliminate improper and miss ranging hits.
  • Checking the settings is secondary because before you install these devices, all are in proper configuration for it to work. Re-doing the settings is unnecessary unless there are changes made, like modem, router or switch was reset.
  • For best practice, checking the settings is good to nothing. Why check if this will help you solve the problem, isn't it?
  • Lastly, you'll need to contact your ISP and ask for better advices because they might know the root cause of they issue. They can check the link because of the tool they use, compare to us experts here. We don't have a supporting document other than providing suggestions.
