    All your internet traffic should more than likely be routed to the T1. If you want to test the DSL circuit thats plugged into your network you would need to change to an IP address of the DSL circuit and point your default gateway to the DSL router.

    Now does your DSL router do DHCP? If so having that enabled and plugged into the rest of your network may/will cause problems confusing workstations of where they are connecting to. But on your machine you should be able to setup a 2nd IP address and gateway to test.

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you are absolutely right. You can plug right into the modem, but your ISP should have provided for you a new set of IPs to use for the modem. A public IP address, gateway, and DNS information. The modem itself probably does not do any NATing.
