Multiple Default Gateways

smpross asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-18
Hi All,
I have two connections to the Internet (Different ISPs) that have two separate firewalls.  I am wondering if it is possible to configure DHCP on the internal network to list more than one default gateway.  This way, if the primary default gateway were to fail, the client computer would automatically try the secondary default gateway.  I would like to achieve this without user intervention.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
