Combining two DSL connections for LAN connectivity
Posted on 2002-05-07
I would like to have redundant DSL connections to my office, and be able to have both be active concurrently (transparent to my users, of course). Hopefully, this will make my office connectivity less subject to the vagaries of a single DSL provider.
However, my existing DSL providers gives me static ip addresses, while the potential new providers only offer dynamic ip addresses.
What network configuration would make this work (e.g., dual port router with NAT on one of the ports, etc.)?
1. My clients all have static ips and will retain those
2. Currently with single DSL connection I have a pretty simple setup as follows:
dsl line <-> dsl router <-> firewall <-> switch <-> lan ... clients
Is there any other info needed?
