The PERM [Practical End-host collaborative Residential Multihoming framework] project is a University of Illinois project from the Systems, Wireless, and Networking Group ther that aims to use idle bandwidth accross multiple boradband connections to increase the last mile throughput. (Read “speed from you to your ISP”) PERM employs automated on-line analysis of the user’s networking behaviors, and exploits the identified patterns to achieve high-performance scheduling at the flow level.
Details are fairly sketchy at this point on the PERM site HERE
But they have both a linux client and a firmware for the Open Source Linux WRT54G which can be obtained HERE
Expect more info from me once I find someone to share bandwidth with.
