I have a customer that want to use 2 T1 lines into a 1720 and have the shared bandwidth used via the FastEthernet port. I would like to give him instructions and/or a sample config. Any help would be great

Thanks

Rich

Just a few quick questions-

Are the 2 T1's connecting to the same ISP?
Are these 2 T1 to load balance traffic from the ISP?

If you want to use it for load balancing to the same ISP, just configure them as usual.
Then configure EIGRP for the load balancing and use CEF (Cisco express forwarding)

EIGRP will automaticaly do load balancing over equal cost links and since they are both full T1's it will work nicely.

the commands are:

router(config)#router eigrp <AS number>
routerconfig-router)#network xx.xx.xx.xx
routerconfig-router)#no auto-summary

router(config)#ip cef


that's it...

Here is a link to CEF for load balancing
