I unfortunately live in the Land of No Broadband Service so I have a Balance 580 that I use to aggregate bandwidth from two satellite connections, two DSL connections and a cellular link. Of these services, the satellite provides the most bandwidth - but it’s also the most restrictive in terms of usage caps and daily allowance periods.
For example, one of my satellite links gives me 15mbps with a 40gb maximum per month, but only for usage between the houses of 8am and 5p. My other satellite connection gives me 10Mbps with a 20gb maximum per month, but a “bonus” allowance of 20gb used between the hours of 2am and 7am.
I can control cut-in and cut-out based on usage, to a degree (because I can’t really provide logic for the “bonus” periods) but what I have no way of controlling is the cut-ins/cut-outs by time. I’d like to be able to set a rule to cut-in the 15Mbps sat link between the hours of 8-6 and set the priority accordingly, but then switch things up once that goes offline and I need to re-shuffle the remaining connections for the evening… and then shuffle again to bring the second sat link back online at 2am, and so on.
I don’t see an obvious way to do this in the console. Two questions:
- Is there a kludge-y way to do it otherwise?
- Can I make this a feature request for a new FW release?
