I know this should probably go in the Internet section, but this category is more popular and it does concern hardware :p
So I have a couple hacked cable modems, allowing me to run more than one connection at a time in my home, also faster. (30/3 as apposed to the 6/1 they limit me to)
I wanted to know the best way to go about balancing over up the 5 modems. Feel a little ashamed having completed a well know networking company's course at my college. But its been some time since completing it and have had little practice on the subject.
Want to keep my wireless N going of course. Should I:
1. Setup a seperate pc to handle all the connections and act as a router
2. Run load balancing on my Windows Home Server and have everything routed through that (have heard u can load balance)
3. Get a router I can run DD-WRT on. I know that firmware can dual-wan but can it handle a WAN on more than 2 ports?
4. Get a Cisco router and somehow configure it to work how I want
Of course im trying to do this on a budget. Thanks for any advice!
