Moving from two ISPs to one
Posted on 2008-10-21
Two ISPs, each has their own DSL modem and then that is connected to its individual router. Each router has a couple/three devices connected to it and each forms it small network
Just upgraded one of the ISPs to a 10MB connection so we want to cancel the other ISP (save money!!) How do we connect the the system? we need both routers ... The first (TP-LINK r460) one has a fixed IP address (this cannot be changed for the time being and it provided by the new ISP connection) which serves as a link to video systems etc. The other router (Linksys RT-31P2) is a combined router-VOIP/phone device (supplied by the VOIP provider, so it is required also as it is our telephony connection). We also would like to have all the devices networked!!
How do we configure the setup? we tried with a switch (D-Link DES-1008D) ...but messed up
