Looking awesome! Very envious!

 

I have the same Hitron modem. I used a 2U blank panel and cut a rectangular hole in the middle of it using a drill, jigsaw and a file. Then used some angle brackets to hold it to the blank panel. Had to carefully screw in the bracket into the modem box but most of it is empty. Voila! Rack mounted modem. Man Happy

@torinogtman Very clean, Thats a great idea! Hows the air flow?

My rack is DIY and the back is totally open. I could probably put a fan in there to move air around, but I have it the rack in my crawlspace/basement so it's cool by nature down there. I have a DIY server on the bottom - running normal PC components in a Rosewill case. Nothing exotic like your beautiful setup! I had never seen Neat Patch before and those are awesome looking. How are they to work with? Easy or not?

Yeah the Neat Patch's have come in very handy. If memory serves me well, they are 15in deep, and 3u high. easily detachable faceplate. and are rock solid once you have them mounted. They have 4x4in punch outs, 1 on either side and 2 in the rear. Great company, I had needed a new faceplate as the new one I bought was a new version, the company sent me a new one free of charge and free shipping for a faceplate.

Amazing setup - puts mine to shame.

 

I did wonder why the need for 2 routers rather than using 1 for multi-WAN, or is it just a way to remove all single points of failure?

@RobbieTT Thanks!

 

You are absolutly correct, eliminating single points of failure. Also gives me a chance to test configurations and changes on the Standby and not affect live traffic. 

 

The Multi-WAN is on both routers and the 'primary' Public IP and 'primary' Private IP follows the active router, if the primary router drops the primary modem or private link VRRP will failover all interfaces to the Secondary.

That is a really good point about the second router. I do a lot of tinkering (it's fun!) and that usually means that the network goes offline. Then I get the  inevitable "when will the internet be back on?" from the wife and daughter. LOL. I think I will do something similar to you - thanks for the tip. I am learning a lot of this forum even if my system is just a small home system.

Hey! Very clean installation! I love !
What speed with your coax ?

(or did you find your ethernet cables? they are original!)

@mc_bouille Thanks!

 

Each Coax is 100Mbps down and 4 Mbps up, I can upgrade a package for twice the cost on each to get 200 Mbps down and 7 Mbps up. With the LB'ing I see a bit over 220 Mbps down and roughly 8 Mbps up.

The patch Cables are from Monoprice.com, they have been my go to for a long time. They are the new Slimrun Cat6:

The larger strand is my in-wall wiring from when my house was built. Thats Cat 6A STP Plenium if I remember right.

Oh great! Did you do agreg via a VPN? Or MPTCP? Thanks for link, but I live in France, monoprice request $ 44 shipping via UPS Worldwide ... Too bad ... I can not find the same here ...
I also have coax in the office while waiting for the fiber, look at my speedtest;)
We will have fiber by the first months of 2018, with a bitrate of 1Gbs down and 250 Mbps up!
