I own an ER605 multi-WAN router.
I have three WAN connections - 2 x 1G, 1 x 0.5G and I wish to utilise them at the same time to create a 2.5G network. The problem is that the device I have only comes with 5 WAN/LAN ports. If I connect all three WANs to the same device, I am left with 2 ports that output 1G each. This means I am only using 2G despite having a 2.5G connection.
I intend to purchase another wireless router that supports dual wan and I have come up with a connection that may work. However, I just want to seek your advice before committing to the purchase.
I intend to connect 2 x 1G to the new router, then via one of the LAN ports from the router, I connect it to my ER605. For my remaining 0.5 WAN, I intend to connect it to ER605 as well since it supports multi-WAN. This will allow me to have 2G on the wireless router and up to 1.5G on my ER605 when utilisation on the wireless router is low. However, I am not sure if this will work since I am connecting from one of the LAN ports from the wireless router to the WAN port of ER605 and it doesn't seem like there is a bridging mode for ER605. Anyone knows better? Thanks.
