I ave ten virtual LANs behind my switch and two different Internet connections. How can I balance the load so each line is using about the same bandwidth?

    Use Connectify Dispatch if all the ten connections are from the same single computer.

    Investigate this product:

    It is a unique product/service that should be affordable for home power users and SMBs.
    The website has plenty of illustrations and examples about how it works.

    What are the benefits of load balancing?

    I found this freeware/open-source-ware. Is it useful?:

    Brijesh,

    Going by the network you have defined, it certainly seems for some institute, bpo or a corporate. Accordingly I am suggesting a solution which you can look into. It does much much more than only load balance.It is one of the premium solution and it is known as BlueCoat Packetshaper. There are various models available depending on your data, bandwidth etc. The right sizing and model can be suggested by the vendor. It is very much available in India. You can see the details here : http://www.bluecoat.com/products/packetshaper . Contact their sales from the website to get in touch with you, if you find the solution useful.

      The solution suggested is for big institutes / corporate / business houses networks. However, if I am mistaken on my inference, and you want a home user solution, let me know, and I shall suggest accordingly then. Cheers!!! :)

        I think here Connectify Dispatch would be better solution.
