    Would Untangle"s sd-wan be useful for this?

I think pfSense gets around this with the monitor IP. I hope I am wrong and it does work, anyone able to achieve this? Any Tips?
    As long as you weight your WAN1 and WAN2 connections equally torrent downloads will load balance across the two connections. The reason for this is unique to the bittorrent protocol where there are multiple peers each with different IP addresses that round-robin through the various connections in a multi-threaded way. Note: no single connection will use more than the bandwidth of any one of your WAN connections.

    The Peplink forum is very helpful and there are instruction guides. I originally tried PFsense and there was no way I could get it setup in bridge mode. The PFsense forum does not tolerate less knowledgeable folks. I gave up and found Untangle to be fantastic and the so is this forum. Peplink load balancing routers are expensive and there are some services required as well. My AWS instance costs my less than $9.00 Canadian a month but there are cheaper alternatives. AWS is free for the first year which is very cool.
    At one point I was on Digital Ocean but Netflix detected the twin VPN tunnels and blocked me. Good luck with your search. Maybe The LEO Starlink will work for you at the end of the year.

    If you are willing to learn network stuff, than mikrotik and a virtual server instance running Mikrotik CHR can configured to bundle multiple land lines.. before I got my cable I did this with 4 DSL lines.
    The problem is what atomicboy described, as you need somehow a external gateway which has a fixed IP in a range outside of usual provider IP ranges you will blocked by netflix.

    Do you know if this is the same with Usenet traffic?

    I read about Starlink that would be a game changer. I am northern MN so almost Canada and they talked about rolling this out first in northern us and canada. Thanks for all the advice.

    I will definitely look into this. Thanks again.

    5G will do you far more good than any satellite based system. It may sound funny... but when it comes to getting crap into and out of orbit, the speed of light is just too darned slow!

    Folks,

    As stated, a single connection speed test or download won't saturate both WAN1 and WAN2 internet connections. I have a peplink balance one, and as a matter of fact it was the processing shortcomings of that device that led me to untangle. I have two Gigabit connections, and as you can see in the screenshot below, Untangle will in fact balance traffic nicely and saturate both connections on a multi-connection application like Fast.com, Steam, torrents, etc etc.

    For those who are interested, I have this Untangle instance running in Hyper-V with a 10G connection to my core switch, so can it can fully saturate both Gigabit internet connections on the front side and then feed 2.5Gbps to my network and devices behind the firewall. Obviously this is nice for Steam, though the max I can get from them is about 160 MEGABYTES per/sec instead of 240+.

    186,000 miles per second: it's not just a good idea, IT'S THE LAW.

    That said, Starlink operates in LEO instead of GEO like most traditional comsats, and LEO is MUCH closer to the earth and therefore the speed of light won't matter nearly so much. Most of the Starlink satellites are in 340mi orbits, rather than 22,500mi for geosynchronous birds. So latency due to c is around 4ms vs. 250ms.
