Load Balancing is the default settings of Vigor Router. Once a WAN link is online, the router will add it to the load balancing pool. No configuration required, and no need for understanding the technical terms.
The router tracks the bandwidth usage on each WAN, detects the maximum bandwidth they can reach, and make sure the bandwidth utilization of each WAN is similar.
DrayTek multi-WAN routers do automatic failovers between WAN connections. In the events of ISP outage, the router will transfer the traffic to another WAN smoothly. Ensure reliable Internet connectivity and save you from the cost of network downtime.
A higher-cost link can run in failover mode and act as a WAN backup to your network. The router can activate the backup link under conditions automatically, such as primary link disconnects, ping fails, or when traffic reaches the defined threshold; therefore to keep the network available.
While there are multiple Internet links, routing policies can be created to designate a link for VoIP traffic, traffic from a certain range of IP, or traffic to a specific destination.
The performance of a website or a server might be related to from which ISP you are connecting. While subscribing to multiple Internet lines for better performance, sometimes LAN users might want to choose an outgoing ISP for better connection experience.
DrayTek Load Balancing Router offers the solution! The router can own multiple LAN IP addresses on the LAN subnet, and each for them can map to a different WAN interface. It allows LAN clients to choose which WAN interface they want to go by changing only their gateway IP configuration.
