I’ve got a peplink balance 20 loadbalancing a Timewarner Cable connection and a Verizon ‘high speed’ DSL.
I’m fairly satisfied with the peplink appliance - it is generally simple and clear
There is one issue I’ve been having with the health check on my DSL:
it’s down too much - I’m not sure if maybe there are issues between the interfaces on the peplink and my verizon modem - but I can run a successful ping test off the DSL network while at the same time the peplink admin page is showing that link as failing the test.
I think - at least with the configuration I have here - that the link failure detection is being too greedy. It seems to fail the test too easily.
Unfortunately I can’t seem to find any settings to address this problem - I have it whether I use DNS or Ping tests, HTTP doesn’t seem to be an option here either. Perhaps this is an issue with the quality of my DSL, but when I run a ping test off my laptop I see satisfactory results. Nothing indicating the outright failure the peplink seems to assume after a delay in response.
Is there a firmware upgrade that can fix this? Is there anything I can do to address this?
Everytime the DSL has the slightest hookup, the load balancer is shutting the interface down for WAY too long.
