I'm very much a novice in this area and was hoping for some help.
I have a remote location that has poor internet connection options. Every carrier I have tried is up & down.
Was hoping to use ERlite3 to solve this problem.
So my question is this. Doing some research it looks like you use load balancing to:
1. Split the traffic based on a % - which is helpful if you are trying to just increase bandwith. It appears a downside of this is the hard coded 50% rule, which means the bandwitch is only as fast as double the slowest bandwidth.
2. As a fail over - which is helpful if you have two good connection and are just trying to create more resliance.
I guess what I'm really looking for is bonding instead of load balancing. Are there suggested settings that would help acheive this?

You can do bonding only if your ISP supports bonding.
For your scenario I'd go with fail-over only option. Pick ISP as primary and setup one or more as fail-over.
