I just replaced my Ac66U with an AC88U router. I have two cable modems in my house because the original
modem/router/wireless one would not play well with my security cameras. I have the wan port connected
to the standard cable modem. I was wondering if I could use one of the LAN ports to connect to WAN port 1 on the new router to dual a dual WAN setup? The IP address from the modem/router would be a 192.168.0.??
and my AC88U is using 192.168.1.??..


Would that work? I do not use the wireless from the cable modem router with wireless.

Thanks
Tony

Both modems are from the same ISP, both are 100 down connections with a different IP address. One goes into an Arris DG3270 wireless router
the other into a straight cable modem. Just wondering if I could use the dual wan feature with those two connections.

Reading Dual WAN related threads on SNB I would say it's more trouble than benefit.
Why pay for 2 ISP connections in first place? Isn't it cheaper to get one with faster speeds?

double wan speed increase
only possible if it is one provider and a special device that also has 2 ports
in this case, you get full aggregation of channels
otherwise, you can configure traffic priority for WAN1 and WAN2 or make a reservation in case of failure of one of the modems

Dual WAN and WAN Aggregation are two completely different things.

Dual WAN and WAN Aggregation are two completely different things.
you are proving one more time that you are not competent in this matter


study
what aggregation is, what you read on the box or in the booklet is not reliable information.


double wan, this is aggregation
in this ray, it is either balancing or fault tolerance

Suddenly there are no features in this device. I can say as an IT Architect and Data Center Administrator:

other technologies have not yet been invented

double wan can work like
- load balancing is one of the providers
- like balancing channels between different providers or connection points
- as a fault tolerance connection of one or more providers or connection points

Not sure if you can see the difference.
I’ll repeat to you once again study what channel aggregation is

if you don’t litter there are no other technologies, all the difference is only in setting up one or another connection.

OK. It is the language barrier. o_O

In my place we use something called "specifications".
RT-AC88U <- I don't know if you can see the model number well. :D

What's available on this router model:
Dual WAN - YES
Link Aggregation - YES
WAN Aggregation - NO

We also make a difference between Dual WAN, Link Aggregation and WAN Aggregation. :cool:
