I currently have 2 modems from Charter Spectrum that provide me with 100/5. I am hoping to use load balancing for these 2 connections. I also have a 24 port unmanaged switch and a Netgear Nighthawk R8500. I am guessing to use the router I would need to make it strictly and access point. Should I connect the Netgear Nighthawk to the Peplink Balance One directly or to the unmanaged switch. I also have Nest cameras and Ring cameras and not sure if they have require a static IP address.
I plan on using Shareband to bond these 2 lines for higher upload speed in the near future and probably get 2 more modems to either load balance or also bond those.
Does anyone here also have any issues with Plex? How would I make my computer only pickup one IP address of the higher upload dual connection and not load when I have a need to host connect?
Does anyone know the wifi specs, actually link rate of the Balance One? I could not find this information anywhere. My R8500 is 1000 Mbps for 2.4 GH and 2,150 for each 5.0 GH band.
