    Per-packet or per-destination..

    Does my isp need to know I switched between the two or it's seamless to
    them ? ie I'm running per-packet now, and I like to see what per
    destination looks like...

    I dont have my ISP # handy so, im too lazy to call till tomorrow..
    thanks

    Your setting won't affect their setting, so if they are currently
    per-packet back to you know, they will still be per-back back to you
    afterwards. The distribution algorithm is not negotiated.

    Most ISP's probably only support per destination, but having your
    settings different is fine.

    If you have two T1's, you simply get two seperate 1.5Mb links on the
    download to you, and an aggregate 3Mb out to the Internet. The only
    reason that would be a problem is if one line was noticeably slower
    than the other, then out-of-order packets could happen. There is only
    one way to find out.....
