Link Aggregation

  • Just picked up an Alien Router and wish it had support for link aggregation, especially considering how much they cost.

    What would be awesome on the Alien Router is the ability to transform the four ethernet ports into two aggregated ports.

    I would create a virtual interface on my Mac Mini to connect to one of those aggregated connections, and then connect the two ports on my NAS to the other aggregated connection on the Alien router.

    Another user suggested this same idea for the Alien HD, but I wanted to post it here for the Alien Router.

  • Yes please and thank you. I was a little shocked to find this wasn't an option as I was hoping to use "the fastest wifi router" to get some >1g connectivity wireless to a 10g nas.

  • Yes, this is one major drawback of this otherwise awesome router.
