We have a Balance 310 and we still have a bunch of problem with it. I’ve reset it, started from scratch but it keeps freezing at at least stops working and all internet connection get lost.
Application that tends to cause this mainly Creative Cloud Desktop when it downloads updates, which takes up all bandwidth even if we have set load balancing and have cable 60/12 and one Fiber 50/10 WAN connections. It’s like it max’s out and crashes or something. BitTorrent is another app that tends to crash it altough we don’t use this very often, but almost each time someone (mainly my boss) updates his app with Creative Cloud, it crashes the Peplink Balance 310. Not good!
I’ve read on a blog that you can actually hit a wall when you get to the max the Balance can go to and it basically gives up and crashes. Is is possible? We are a small business of 12 employees, in the spec for that device, it’s suppose to handle 1-50 users, so what’s the problem?
A bit more detail, I had set the outbound rules as the default, with HTTPS persistence, and Default Auto. Would changing this to full auto High compatilibity availability change anything?
I see in the spec that the total throughput of that device is 100Mbps, since we have a 50 and 60 down connection, and it goes beyond the 100Mbps, can this be the reason it crashes? Would we be better served with the Balance One, which has 1Gbps throughput?
Thanks for any help or advice on this.
