My cable ISP just switched from DOCSIS 3.0 to DOCSIS 3.1.

My Modem (SB8200) has two ethernet ports which support link Aggregation.

Theoretically I only get 1gbps, however it might be worth a shot to see what happens if I try link aggregation.

I’m currently running DD-WRT v3.0-r44406 std (09/18/20) on my ProtectLi FW6A.

This might be worth a shot, but I don’t know the first thing about how I might set this up. I’m throwing this thread up here to let it marinate, and will educate myself in the meantime:

I have not seen the bonding config that I am aware of on any of my devices in the past 3 years. I have an R7800, an R9000, and R7000P on the upper end of the spectrum here locally to check, but I do not think it's there anymore?

My understanding is I have to bridge the WAN with one of the other ethernet ports on my router.

For the bonding config to be visible? I would have to check into it pretty deeply, because if this were truly still available and possible with DD-WRT, I could put it to use. I think the one thing that has been lacking for a while is bonding / dual WAN capability from the webUI in the past (?).

I thought bonding was a bridge configuration

It is, but I forget if you would normally bridge a port with WAN to bond them (for dual wan). If so, this functionality would be great if it is still present (I don't think it is?).

I do not know. Further internettingi says link aggregation is dependent on the hardware, so any software implementation would only be possible if the hardware supports it.

I shot a message to ProtectLi to see if the intel 6-port device they installed supports link aggregation.

As an aside: I upgraded to the latest firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r46772 std (05/26/21)

And I still do not know if the bonding config is present for x86 or x86_64 (or any other routers)...

Just checked my configuration:

Under Setup --> Networking there is an option for bonding where I can set up a “Bond" and a "Slave"
