I have been using a Balance 20 unit with a 12/2 Mbps ISP and a 5/.8 Mbps ISP for a month now. Overall the product works well with my tweaking here and there, but I am still finding that the WAN #2 (slower) ISP gets the majority of the downloads. Trying various settings in download bandwidth and speed don’t seem to make as much difference as I had hoped. Did I miss something in the manual and/or can anyone suggest a configuration that would be the most efficient?
For what it is worth, I was using the Balance 20 with just the slower ISP mentioned above and it was labeled as WAN #1 then. I reconfigured for the two ISP’s (with the faster one now as WAN #1), made a configuration backup file, reverted to factory settings, and then reinstalled the old settings in order to wipe the history data. Could the router still be holding onto the original (slower) ISP as the priority for some reason?
