Re: [Fwd: Howto (active-backup) bonding eth0 and wlan0 (was Re: nslu2: two ethernets: one by default)]

Okay, Tobias. Thanks for this comment. Really I'm a lazy man and with your comment, I think I will continue to my script that only change route table switching between eth0 and wlan0. It's not the most beautiful way but it's the easiest way to do what I want.

Thanks Tobias and Lennart,

Once I tried with a LaFonera to archieve the same, wasting a day or so.
The result was, as soon as I turned on encryption, it stop working.
So I *think*, that the AP / WPA checks or uses the MAC address of the
frame for encryption or to check if the packages are legitimate.

Short story: I do not think this will work.

I like very much the Oliver private post but this procedure is _too_ big for me ,-). I just want to know:
1)  what to do the bonding transition
2) how to revert bonding If I want.
Does your access point support bonding?  If not, then it won't work as
far as I know.

My access point? Why the active-backup bonding depends on AP and not only on my box (nslu2)? Can you explain me technical details?

My router is "Belkin ADSL modem with wireless G-router" model # F5D7632-4.
It's a similar router like http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=278082
but I don't know if it supports bonding.
