TOPIC: Multiple IP Address on Router

Multiple IP Address on Router 7 years 10 months ago #28078

Hi Guys,

I am just curious if we can used multiple IP address in router (d-link) from ISP in able to have a faster connection? I mean if we can used 4 IPs at the sametime but using only one router.

Our ISP's here give 4 static IP address for business type broadband, so I wonder instead of using the other IPs as failover, I will used it simultaneously.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Cheers!

No, Link speed is generally a property of Layer 1 (physical medium) - you can not increase this by adding more Layer 3 (logical addressing). Also, you can't really use four addresses simultaneously in the true meaning of the word without confusing your ISP.

Hi gagamboy,

short answer (and definit) : No, you cannot upgrade your speed by adding IP addresses.

The multiple IP adresses are used for having multiple web-servers on your company. ftp servers, citrix servers, etc.

You can have one ip-address defined and the other 3 routed in your network, or just use some NAT-translation to connect to the servers.

So, to answer your question :

No, you can't upgrade your speed by adding IP addresss.

Your speed is most likely capped at ISP side or as novembre said related to your Layer-1 (physical) configuration.

To speed up your connection, call your ISP and say you want to pay more :)

Hi Guys,

Thanks for enlightening me. :D I've used the typical Dlink (524).

So basically, using multiple IP add does not improve speed? ok.

But can I use multiple IP using only 1 router? My ISP gave me three IPs but I only used one, as I looked into the router I think it can only handle one.

Correct me if I am wrong with any of this. Thanks. :D

Cheers!

Gagambo ur ISP (most ISP's) gave 3 ip addresses u might choose from the 3 if u like. u are not suppose to go outside the ones u were given. for example on a link star via sat u might be given 10.251.57.35, 36, 37. u are not to use any ip address < .35 or > .37

hey just to push more i believe in innovation if u come up with some crazy ideas on using the 3 at same time hey spread it out.

and from wat i see u are suffering from slow internet connection. u knw most times the problem might not be with the internet service it might be within ur cafe, or organization (IT organization).... do ur home work...?
