Being able to select gateway

Is there a way you could directly select which gateway to go on?
At the moment its hit and miss by resetting the ISP in the router options until you get to the pipe you want .( ie the one with least % of users)

A percentage of current users against Maximum users column on that Chart would also be a great help Smiley
Thx f9o

Plusnet would love to be able to direct you to a specific gateway - they'd automatically direct you the lightest loaded gateway. Some years ago BT were working on something called session steering which would allow this but the project was cancelled.

Re: Being able to select gateway

Maybe a % column of  Maximum for each pipe, is any easy eyeball option to aim at as we refresh, refresh & refresh PPPoA session and hope we'll get there in the end...... Smiley
