bonding ADSL
Can anyone tell me if there is a way to bond 4 or more ADSL lines with Linux? I am doing it now with ML-IP. It's a software that fragments each packet over all the ADSL lines thru a tunnel and then at the colo befor going out the back bone line it puts it back together. And it works both ways up and down. I would keep using the softeware but it's $690.00 per location plug the Linux box. I've looked at the MLPPP and thought that may be the way to do it, some thing like a MLPPPoE thru a tunnel %'):confused:

I've heard tell of a couple of cisco routers that will do it for you. The 1721 or the 2611 but I've never done it myself.

I saw in one of the HOWTOs the same thing done with dial up
but sorry to say I forgot where it was eather in ppp howto or net working howto but if it will work with dial up it should work with dsl
AND it already built in to linux networking

I think I have found what your looking for it's
ISDN channel bundling
and in the little I've read it works with Ethernet cards too
its main use is to get more bandwidth by using multiple phone lines
in places where broad band hasn't reached
