T1 and Cable modem combo??
Posted on 2004-08-20
Here is the scoop. I have finally got my boss to approve a full t1 for our web design section insted of cable but now he has asked about reliabilty and wants to possibily host temp sites in house untill they are fully published.
Problem I dont trust just one connection if we are going to host anything in-house even temp sites. Secondly I cant get boss man to approve dual t1's yet.
Question is there a way to use my cable as a backup (it has a static ip already) and use my t1 for primary but have it set up automaticly on some kind of router incase the t1 goes down the cable will kick in automaticaly.
2nd question if I can use the cable as a backup can I combine both connections to almost double my connection speed like I can with dual t1's.
If either of these are possible what equipment do I need and what kinda cost does it usually run?
thanks for all the help in advance
