Hi I am considering purchasing a balance one for home office. Wan connections are 6mbps spotty dsl service and verizon 4g LTE with variable speeds (our tower is over crowded. Bandwidth from tests ranges anywhere from 2mbps to 25mbps). I am trying to determine the best way to configure router to meet my needs.
Specifically I have two work PCs that need top priority to bandwidth and low latency. I am trying to load balance this against wife who loves netflix :). The DSL service craps out on occasion so I need to be able to failover and failback from the 4g.
I have sort of achieved this with a cradlepoint 1400 router by forcing the netflix client ip to use 4g and then a rule to force work PCs to use DSL. However I would honestly prefer to let the netflix use the DSL too to reduce the data capacity used on the 4g. (I couldn’t get the qos settings to work on the cradlepoint- now’s your chance to convert me!), but this would need to be setup in a way to not degrade my work PCs’ sessions.
So ideally it would be setup in a way that everything uses the DSL
If DSL gets clogged up or goes down, it uses 4g too.
If netflix and work PCs are both using DSL, work pcs get priority always.
Any advice on how to achieve this? Please let me know if I left out any information.
Also it’s awesome that you guys have a community forum:up:
