Never did this before (but have researched it) so I don't know all that is required.

There are 2 ways you could accomplish this.

1) Buy a load balancing router
- Cisco and Barracuda Networks are two companies that sell them. These things are/can be expensive though. Most load balancers can only handle 2 incoming connections (i.e. 2 DSL Modems) or require a 2nd identical router and 2 switches.

2) A cheaper way (but requires more network hardware) would be to install 3 Ethernet cards on your squid server and connect the DSL modems directly to the server. If you try/consider this method I would recommend buying 3 routers (one per DSL modem). This method would require load balancing software be installed on the server to use all 3 connections as 1 connection

Method 2 diagram:
DSL Modem 1 --> Router 1 --> Server:Eth0
DSL Modem 2 --> Router 2 --> Server:Eth1
DSL Modem 3 --> Router 3 --> Server:Eth2

Hope this helps,
splunk

if you're referring to my reply, then you'd just run the commands given on lartc.
