2 line on a single modem?
« on: December 10, 2020, 03:08:16 PM »

I have a question.
Is it possible to run 2 lines on a single modem? In the modem stats for xdsl why there are two paths path0 and path1.

is it possible to combine two lines in a single connection?

These are different types of ‘applications’ different sorts of traffic with different requirements, but there is still just the one physical line. The first chapter or so explains all: https://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-G.992.3/en


Interleaved path and fast path may be where you have seen these terms used. Also ‘bearer 1’.

Yes there are modems that can do this.

Some modems have 2 x rj11 DSL sockets.

Some other modems have a single rj11 socket but with 4 active pins instead of the standard 2. With these modems you wire both incoming pairs to a single rj11 connector.

I think there might be some fritzbox's that do this.

I'm not sure if such modems only work with xDSL bonding or will run 2 independent circuits. It's not something I've looked in to much.
