    Just wanted to mention an issue I ran into while restoring previously working load balanced profile:

    The WAN interfaces should not be set up as default routes, none of them.

    If any one L/B WAN interface was a default route, than no L/B would occur.

    It should be compatible:

    You may want to run a checksum of your 2.0RC2 image. I’ve seen some reports that some of the download sites (one in Switzerland?) may have bad copies. Incidentally, my 2.0RC2 CD ISO has this SHA-1 hash: f7abb94f0808b9675d7f072fb662c3256b051e0e and has been working.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ And how do you think I figured that? ๐Ÿ˜†

    BTW, Switzreland mirror has a good copy. Just don’t use download managers.

    Test your RC2 download with MD5, looks like it is making its way to the mirrors and file you’ve d/l could be broken. I had the same issue. Switzerland mirror has a complete file for sure.

    Figured my CD image was corrupt from using download accelerator… 2nd try…

    No good! No more load balancing, limited under 6 mbit.

    Actually, after more testing, I managed to force some load balancing to occur after adding many download segments. With 1.0 and Atheling’s patch the 2nd d/l segment would almost 100% be load balanced. Here I had to add 6-7 segments to get load balancing.

    Do I need to remove Atheling’s patch? Maybe it’s interfering…

    I am going to try 2.0 with 2x 6mbit load balanced DSLs on the weekend and report. can’t do it right now due to being connected to work via VPN all the time, but promise I will test soon.

    As soon as I’ve added TCP protocol and port 80 to the 2 rules above, they started working. Guess, it could be a bug in 1.0, dunno if fixed in 2.0rc but going to try it soon

    Can anybody explain how to use Zeroshell as proxy or point me to a document?

    How specifically those rules can be configured?
    Can you provide step by step instructions?

    What I am presently doing is using for example DownThemAll add-on for Firefox. It is configured to start only 1 segment. Speed reaches 1xDSL. Then after a few seconds I add another segment and d/l rate reaches 2xDSL line. Most of the time that works, but it’s a manual workaround every time.

    Sorry I am slow as Zeroshell 1.0 was running for quite some time w/o me even remembering I had a router (see how stable it is!:)…

    …but now that 2.0 is out, I have a question: can I just insert a new CD with 2.0 into the box with configuration of 1.0 saved on a HDD and reboot? Will it automatically pick up 1.0 saved config and carry on?

    And just want to use this opportunity to thank Fulvio for incredible work he is doing and to re-state how happy I am that Zeroshell is out there. Zeroshell has truly taken all troubles off my shoulders.

    I never stop recommending Zeroshell to everyone who is looking into using a router.

    Thank you Fulvio! Much appreciated. Your work proves you are an old school developer – quality and user oriented!

    Not sure how you established that HTTP LB works.
    It does not automatically work for me. Instead I have to start 1 download segment and after a few seconds add 1 more, than in 90% cases 2nd DL will be load balanced.

    Haven’t tried FTP in years, so don’t know if that works.

    I think you guys should know, that R8169 driver in Linux is badly flawed.
    There are several problems with the driver that I am aware of.
    Of course there could be other problems that I did not face due to broad variety of possible chip revisions etc.

    1. The driver does not init the chip properly, specially after dual-boot into Windows (no link detected)
    2. Driver is not able to detect gigabit connection and falls back to 100 Mb
    3. For some weirdest reason actual xfer speed with Windows based hosts can be anywhere between 1 kB/s and 500 kB/s.

    I struggled with the last one and found that sometimes initiating a xfer with another non-Windows host may temporarily bring Windows host’s xfer rate to around 10 MB/s, but not all the time.

    I wrote to the driver authors and distro maintainers but they all gave me a runaround or did not respond at all.

    So R8169 is a bastard child of Realtek when it comes to Linux and the best solution is to replace it with 3com, Intel or another well supported chip.

    Could it be because I missed the check box to activate the Cron command?
    So it did not run.

    Disabling the ICMP failover checking fixed the issue with AJAX chat site but broke download speed. I’d rather have fast d/l than chat room.
