I'm about to buy the Optus (Netgear) AC800S Mobile Broadband device and complement it with the NetGear DC112A dock. I've hear this is now compatible.
However I also have a slow (Rural area) NBN service that I'll be keeping due to the amount of data we download in medical industry (One MRI can be a couple of GB. So we exceed 1TB per mth.
The Optus Mobile Braodband is considerably faster. Thus the investment.
However I want to be able to use fast download for general family streaming and internet whilst utilising the NBN for the hefty download volumes.
Does anyone know if I can have the DC112A set-up for load balancing between the NBN and the docked mobile broadband (AC800S)?

Wouldn't you have two modems - one for the NBn connection and one for the new mobile broadband?
Just connect people to the one you want them to use day to day?

The Rooter firmware is a custom install of a Linux OS onto usually TP-Link routers. You notice a mention of routing traffic to a particular IP.
Otherwise, the RT-68U migth be able to handle linking to both ethernet and wifi.

Did the combo of AC800S and DC112A work for you?
