That would be interesting for me, because I’ve been thinking about exactly this, multiple DSLs, when it doesn’t look there’s going to be anything faster available in our area for a long time. I haven’t asked my ISP if they support bonding, but I think it would be costly anyway, and they might want to control the routers on our end.

I still hope to also post my config as an example to the Wiki, when I get some time and maybe after I’m satisfied with the bridging. Maybe two configs, one for routing and one for bridging.
