Setup both T1 and Cablemodem on the same network.
Posted on 2007-03-26
My office currently has a T1 and we keep getting new employees and we are outgrowing it quickly so we ordered a business class cablemodem which is 8M down and 1M up. What I want to do is keep the T1 for the critial devices such as our mail server and printers for remote printing and use the cablemodem for all of the employees computers; I would like both the cablemodem and T1 on the same local network so that we can access what is on the T1 and Cablemodem as if it were on the same local network.
I am unsure as to how I would hook the cablemodem up to our switch so that we can pretty much keep our computers and our current network the same but just have our traffic for the internet routed through the cablemodem.
We currently have the following network equiptment:
- Cisco Catalyst 2950
- Cisco PIX 501 6.3(3)
So, what I need to know how to do is hook up both the T1 and Cablemodem to the same switch and be able to utilize all of the devices on the network as if they were local and just have the employees computers access the internet using the cablemodem and have all of our servers and printers access the internet using the T1.
Thanks a bunch.
