joining ADSL connections

By icelemon ·
is it possible to join multiple adsl connections into one large connection?

for example 5 8mb ADSl connections will be one total 40MB connection.

if we can how do we do it?


ps: usually for company type of 50 computers network setup. is it recommended that we use a server computer to act as a server, or is it better to have a "router" to act as a server (to provide internet connection)?

if i were trying to set this up i would be getting trying to get a tech sales rep from my phone company to talk to.
to answer your question, few years back i asked this myself and was directed to company that had device that could mux up to 4 various connections including dsl.
i don't seem them anymore when i google 'multiplex dsl' tho
i think you are asking the right questions. once you have your method of physically connecting to the internet figured out you may find your other question becomes moot. (is that is how you use that word.)
i would see if i could get 'pre sales tech support from the router guys' at my phone company. ask them:
1) how you gonna get the big pipe you want to your lan? ask them about your idea of joining many.
3) what is the brand and model number router you recommend i use to bring the internet to my lan.
3) how will that device secure my lan resources from hackers outside my lan?
hih

there are appliances that can so network load balancing. ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition can also perform NLB on multiple lines. Many of these appliances are very pricy. It's almost more cost effective to go to a OC3 line if you need aggragate bandwidth rather than redundancy. Cisco has acces routers that are capable of managing multiple WAN connections for redundancy and NLB on the WAN links. Symantec also has a gateway that can handle a couple of line on the WAN link with fail over to ISDN. ISA Server 2004 can handle multiple WAN links and ISDN.

Also want Wireless:

ok, well you won't get wireless WAN unless you have really deep pockets. for LAN, its a matter of setting up access points around the company.

thanks, you are right. i rather go for hardware type of load balancing than the software type. for softwares you will have to have a detailed understanding what is going on, whilst for hardware its matter of switching them off then turn them back on again

in the end i think i will take both of you and ctmoore's advices for getting xincom's twinway router, linking it to the server.

then from the server to provide a wireless internet connection for the rest of the team, i hope it will work out this way.

Check out www.xincom.com they have what you are looking for. They have units that allow you to connect multiple internet connections in either failover or load balancing configurations at a decent price. Have used them in critical operations so far so good.
