Load Balancing problem

Today i setup Load Balancing (
and i have a problem
everything work fine with http and p2p (except upload/DNAT)

The problem is:
my mirc skype and online games disconnect me very often 1-10 min when i activate Load Balancing , i read and i dont understand what is the problem if
as it is route based, and routes are cached
where is the problem why my skype and games disconnect me ???
may be this is only in my linux ???

IMO this isn't worth doing. I read the entire page that you referenced. It seems to me that this is only useful for businesses that want to have a fault tolerant connection to the Internet. The load balancing is too much trouble for too little result.

As for your quote, that means that each URL that you access will always go over the same provider so your traffic isn't really load balanced.

yes i know now that this isn't worth ...

but i have very nice result with http and p2p specialy
this month i have 2 ISP and ask myself if i can use 2 at the same time and i came to Load Balancing with linux (my router)

result with p2p is rly nice my 2 connection have ~250k each , and now bitcomet download with 500+kb

only problem is my mirc keep disconnecting me and i cant play WOW
other resolution is to devide skype and p2p i think this is impossible (ot verry hard to do)

i try to change some ipv4 timing - no result
