I have a Balance One Core, with all 8 LAN ports used. It is my understanding that each LAN port is being balanced between the (2) WANs. The algorithm I am using is weighted balance 5:5 between each WAN.
The confusion is that I was originally told by 5GStore that if I plug a switch into, say, LAN 1 on the Balance, and then I fill up the switch with devices, the Balance Router won’t balance between the devices plugged into the switch. It only balances between what’s plugged into each LAN port on the Balance, so it would balance the entire switch against whatever was plugged into LAN 2 on the Balance. Is that how it works?
For example if the two LANs on the switch were using 5Mbps each for a total of 10Mbps for the entire switch, will the Balance One balance each of the LANs on the switch, putting LAN 1 on the switch on WAN 1 on the Balance and LAN 2 on the switch 5Mbps on WAN 2 on the balance? The same way it would if I had plugged in the devices directly into LAN 1/2 on the Balance?
Can someone clear up this confusion for me on how exactly it works?
