Hello everyone,
I'm looking for all the Zyxell Firewall products, that support the Trunk Load Balance between two ADSL connection provided by two different routers; the routers are connectable by RJ45 cables.
Any suggestion on which Firewall i should choose?
Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi @MikroBT,

     

    You can consider USG FLEX 200 or ATP200.

     

    Specs of USG FLEX series:

    Specs of ATP series:

    https://www.zyxel.com/products_services/ATP-Firewall-ZyWALL-ATP100/license-and-spec

     

    For Zyxel devices, load balancing settings can be found under Configuration > Interface > Trunk > Default WAN Trunk menu.

     

    A Trunk interface supports 3 types of Load Balancing Algorithms;

     

    1-    Weighted Round Robin is for balancing traffic load between interfaces based on their respective weights. An interface with larger weight transmits more traffic than an interface with smaller weight.

    2-    Least Load First algorithm used for sending session traffics through the least utilized trunk member.

    3-    Spillover algorithm used for sending network traffics through to first member of the trunk until there’s enough traffic the second interface needs to be used.

     

    May I ask what type of Trunk interface you need?
