Need to add DSL Router to Frame Environment
Posted on 2006-05-30
I need a temporary solution for our branch locations.
Currently each location has 56K frame circuit for data and voice traffic which is routed via Motorola Vangard equipment. Works fine except their Internet connection is via the T1 at headquarters through the same 56K frame line. It's not pretty. I need to give each location a DSL connection for high speed Internet but that leaves me with the question of how to configure the network multiple routers.
The catch is, I need to use an el cheapo Linksys for the DSL circuit as next year we will be replacing everything. The frame circuits will be replaced with MPLS and the data/voice/broadband routing will be handled with a single 'real' Cisco or Addtran router.
So, how can I leave the Vangard in place and incorporate a Linksys for the DSL connection?
