A FireBrick 2x00 has 4 ports, a typically one port will be for the LAN connection, and the rest for connections to the ADSL modems. As there are 4 ports are we restricted to only bonding up to 3 ADSL/FTTC lines? no.

To overcome the physical port restriction a VLAN switch can be used, eg:

ADSL MODEM 1 -
ADSL MODEM 2 -
ADSL MODEM 3 - VLAN Switch -- Firebrick -- LAN
ADSL MODEM 4 -
