Does anyone have any (un)recommendations for a ADSL routers/modems for
use with Linux, or common gotchas that I should be aware of when
choosing? It will be used to connect a small home network to the
Internet, with a Linux machine as firewall, web server and mail server.
Secondly (completely seperate scenario), if you happen to have two (or
more) ADSL connections, is it possible to load balance traffic across
both in order to increase the effective bandwidth? In the case in
question the connections are from two different ISPs. One has a single
static IP address, the other a block of 8 (/29?). The bandwidth would
be used mainly for VPN connections to other offices as well as a lesser
amount for web/mail server and more general internet browsing.
In both scenarios, the venue is in an area where Telewest (or NTL)
cable internet is not available, should you be wondering.
Thanks for any help you may have,
