SRM’s Smart WAN capability on the RT2600ac supports 2Gbps Dual WAN combined bandwidth when multiple connections are established2. If one of the connections goes offline due to ISP or cable problems, traffic can failover to the other interface. Load balancing can be used in addition to failover, spreading traffic across both interfaces. Policy route allows traffic routing based on destination or source address.
Not sure which devices should connect to the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz bands? With Synology’s Smart Connect, devices are connected to the most appropriate band automatically, letting users experience simplified management without worrying about range or speed issues.
