Hey all… I’m new to the Peplink community after getting a MAX BR1 Mini with unlimited AT&T service to replace a satellite internet connection at my home. I’m in a pretty rural area, and this solution has been amazing for working from home during the pandemic. While it’s been working great, getting introduced to this technology has only made me want improve network performance more.
I’m interested in replacing my MAX BR1 Mini with a MAX HD2 Mini, and adding an additional unlimited T-Mobile sim card (the towers are super close to one another, so latency should be comparable) to take advantage of the dual modems and SpeedFusion Bonding offered with the MAX HD2 Mini. Before pulling the trigger on this experiment, I wanted to ask a few clarifying questions:
Do I need an additional appliance (virtual or hardware) to harness the HD2 Mini’s SpeedFusion features? Or is just a service I can activate on the router gateway?
Do you need to create a VPN to use the SpeedFusion features? Or can I just use the features without using PepVPN?
If I need to use PepVPN, will that conflict with a company’s VPN when using my home network for work? (I realize this may be a hard maybe)
Will using PepVPN cause any issues with routing through a non-Peplink device? I know the MAX HD2 Mini doesn’t have an AP, and I’ve had a lot of luck using a Google Nest router with my MAX BR1 Mini.
I’m sure I’ve got more questions stored in my head, but I’ll start with these. While I did my research before asking my questions, I apologize if these answers are documented somewhere (if so, I’d love to read them). Thanks in advance!
