Hi Everyone,

This is my first time using peplink balance one. I am not techsavy and have no knowledge of how this works. However i have tried to do initial setup and created SSID.

I have configured the speed fusion by watching some vidoes online and looking at forums. However i think i still have a long way to go.

In my office i have 2 internet connections ( both from ISP providers ) , i want to use speedfusion bonding so that we can get faster reliable internet speeds on one SSID.


  1. Can I achieve speedfusion bonding with just one peplink balance one?? or do i need multiple devices. Setup is just for one location.
  2. Can anyone guide me how to get this done? how can i activate the bonding?
  3. Is there any way i can hire a tech to do this for me??

Please advise

hi. Speedfusion requires two endpoints. One is your local device with multi-wan, the other is either another physical device in a different location with fantastic internet connectivity, or its a virtual device in the cloud (I use FusionHub on myself) or you can use SpeedFusion Cloud which is a service hosted by Peplink.

The last one is the easiest. So lets start there. Suggest you look at this video from Mike at Get wireless. He knows what he’s talking about

And yes you can hire a tech. I do private work, as do many others on here, but lets try and save you some folding money first if we can.


To build on @MartinLangmaid - The Balance One does load balancing very well, and for many environments that is sufficient: You get a session-level balancing (e.g., alternating connections go to the first or the second WAN connection). In which case you get double the bandwidth of a single WAN, but each particular connection is limited to the WAN that it connects through. It is not packet-level bonding.

With speedfusion you get packet-level balancing (and all the other goodies that come with a bonded connection, such as a fatter pipe for any one session).
If you employ Peplink’s SpeedFusion Cloud then it is real easy, pretty much plug-and-play.

As an alternative you can connect SpeedFusion to another peplink end-point, either your own device elsewhere, or through a FusionHub as @MartinLangmaid suggests.

However, in order to achieve a multi-WAN bonding with the Balance One you need to purchase a license for that functionality, BPL-ONE-LC-SF. Without the add-on license the Balance One supports SpeedFusion on one WAN at a time. It has benefits, but bonding of the two WAN connections is not among them.
I’d recommend starting out with SpeedFusion Cloud. It is easy, might provide exactly what you need, and it is the less expensive proposition.

Thanks for the explanation it was very helpful … I will be setting it up, i was able to locate a video on youtube you posted which goes everything step by step … I do have a followup questions in regards to that on do i need to host an instance? or i can just start a snapshot?

Also i would need some help with setting up a static ip system for one office … at this moment we have dedicated Line from ISP which does cost a lot. There are a few more requirements when it comes to the software we are running as well which will be too advanced for me. Is that something you can help with?

@zegor_mjol Thanks for building up on Martin’s advice. Much appreciated … i have already felt difference in the speeds we are getting already, so ill run this setup without fusion bonding for a few days and see if i really need to go to the next step.

Final Question:
Is there a way to prioritize traffic for my VOIP system without using fusionhub? And is there a way to prioritize parallel web client as well? if so please advise.

Thanks once again
