Three wifi connections, load balancing?

Okay, So I have three wan cards, and three different networks I can connect to (all with separate gateways). Is there any way that I can bridge these together, and have them spread the load through out the three of them?

Short answer no. Complicated answer is "sort of" but not like you're probably thinking. See the above link Deane posted.

Go to network connections on the machine, select all the wifi connections, right-click and select bridge.

I found a Peplink Model 200 for 140 shipped, not sure if that would do it as it is not on the data sheet you specified. That Emerald, that is probably going to be my next big purchase. Anything you know of that can handle more then 2 inputs?

Remember it's not going to be able to "combine" connections, only load balance between them. This means any single connection isn't likely going to be any faster on it's own, however with multiple connections you'll see less of a performance hit since the multiple connections get spread out over the multiple wan links.

This seems to be a big topic. I'm going to work on putting together a sticky for Load Balancing multiple connections.

If anyone is interested in helping out, please PM me and we can define an area to work. I'll make sure you receive credit within the Sticky. This appears to be one of the biggest questions consistently asked and I believe it warrents a sticky.
