HI,
I have 2 connectoins to the internet. One is a T1 which is my primaray connection and the other is a cable modem that is on the ethernet interface of my router. What I am looking to do is have the calbe as a backup to my T1 incase the serial goes down.  Does anyone have any sugguestions or sample configurations for this?

Thanks,

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Serial0/0 1
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 1.1.1.1 2

Where Serial0/0 is your router's interface that has the T1 connected to it.
and
1.1.1.1 is the default gateway of you cable modem provider (given to you by the Cable ISP)

Hmmmm... routing will work, but NAT might be a little more tricky...
Where is the NAT taking place? On this router, or upstream, or a firewall behind it?
