I have both a cable modem and I recently subscribed to DSL to try to insure my internet connectivity is up 24/7. While obviously both could go down, assuming one of them is up all the time, what is the best way to connect them to my two home PCs?
I first tried the Hawking H2WR54G dual wan router which was a piece of garbage. It arbitrarily would shut down ports and then turn them back on 20 minutes later. I then ordered a netgear dual wan VPN router which has frozen up twice in the last week so I'm exchanging it for a new one.
However I dug some old ethernet cards out of the basement and put a second card in each PC and I think that may work, but I still need a router of some kind. I still have a dlink 802.11g single wan router and an older dlink 802.11b single wan router. I also have a 10 port hub I can use. What is the best way to insure both my PCs are up and connected to the internet via one of my two broadband connections?
As a side note both old dlink routers use 192.168.0.1 as their IP address, while the netgear 2 wan router uses 192.168.1.1 as it's IP address (so I was thinking I might be able to connect one router through another router).
