[DSL] Teksavvy Add Ons Is anyone using the IP address add ons? Can you tell me what they refer to? Static IPs?
How are those static IPs assigned? For the /29 for instance with 6 IPs does that mean 6 PPPoE sessions giving 1 IP per session? (Seems like a cumbersome solution)
And static IP + MLPPP for $4/month, is that a bundle savings pricing rather than adding $4 for static and $4 for MLPPP total $8/month
With MLPPP, is a requirement to get two services, for instance two 15/1M and then use MLPPP to theoretically get 15x2/1x2M service since the router will be bonding the two PPPoE sessions together?
If there's technical doc user guide by Teksavvy or anything that you could point me to, it would be appreciated.
The /29 gives you 6 static IPs over 1 PPPoE session.
A static IP costs $4, MLPPP costs $4 per month. If you get a static IP they'll throw in MLPPP for free if you ask.
You don't need two services to use MLPPP. People used to use one service with MLPPP to get past Bell's throttle. If you do use it with 2 lines, yes, you will get basically 2 time your speed down and up.

Static IP's refer to your PPPoE connection receiving 1 Static IP.
A subnet, let's say a /29 is to be used as a method to assign devices of your own network a Static IP. You would get a range & subnet.
E.G. 173.xxx.xxx.xxx / 255.255.255.248
The simple method is as follows.
/29 = 1 Gateway, 5 usable IP's.
Now you can use NAT, but we don't go into details about this.
When you get a Static IP, you can get MLPPP for free.... or vis versa. Either or are optional when you subscribe to Static IP or MLPPP.
To be able to bond 2 lines, MLPPP will be a requirement.

Thanks Martin, I think there is very little now to get SLPPP since Bell no longer throtles the PPPoE speeds.
With MLPPP and two services, do both services have to be identical? And how is bandwidth counted? Is it an aggregate or treated separately. If separate how do you account for the fact there might unequal load balancing making one link go over the cap while the other has unsed bandwidth.
Both services have to be identical speed & usage wise. Bandwidth will be combined but cannot be one of 300GB & one of Unlimited usage.
