I am using Red Hat Linux enterpriser 4 using two physical LAN cards.There are two different ISP internet lines coming into a single gateway computer. Is it possible that if in our one network we are using 2 MB bandwidth and from another network we are getting 2 MB bandwidth.(Two different Networks) and combine it into 4 MB .

The question is can we accumulate or add these two bandwidth in Linux machine and it sent total bandwidth 4 to the end users ?


Lan Card A
IP Address: 192.168.1.250 2MB Bandwidth

Gateway Computer Total Bandwidth 4MB

Lan Card B
IP Address: 176.16.10.10 2MB Bandwidth

Thanks in advance

yes you can do this, if you have trouble in getting things done then FYI we have developed a special system in linux for combing ISPs and provide load balancing, firewall, content restriction, proxy with web based panel and customized script for ease of use. We have provided this system complete with Hardware (PC) to many of our clients in very reasonable cost, if you require any assistance in getting the same please contact me..

gardenair: you can buy hardware load balancer, It will combine these both connections and give you double speed.
