Windows 7: load balancing router (automatic failover) network set up

load balancing router (automatic failover) network set up

hello guys, good day to all.

let me remind you i not that good in networking!!

i been trying to search on how to properly set up a load balancing router but soon as i come close to my answer the more technical it becomes. especially on bridging modems and failover loadbalancing.

now my point is, how will i properly set up my network and router.
first things first would be my list of my devices to be use:
2 adsl2+modems 3mbps each (ppoe)10/100mbps lan speed ( and dhcp enable
1 cisco gigabyte switch
1 tp link er5120 load balancing router ( gateway (
22 workstation pc's ( static ip's

my first question
1. should i put this 2 dsl modem into bridge mode so all ppooe autheticated by the load balancer
2. will this two modem drag my gigabyte lan connection into just 100mbps
3. by doing number 1, will it automatically activate automatic failover in this router or all other router?

Please shed me some light on this things.

Thank You
