I have Nortel passboard 8006 which does my routing 9 different vlans are setup.
Vlan 1 runs on ip range /24 and default gateway is but today I had to add a router to network which is also has ip  of so how can I rout all traffic to and
Watch Question


What are you trying to do?  Why do you want two routers?  Are you after resiliency?  Or does one of the routers route traffic for a network the other router cannot see?



O.K basically our Nortel passboard 8006 has different vlans
On vlan 1 a router has been added which goes to another network my l pc's on valn 1 has a default gateway of which is vlan 1 ip which routes traffic into network  but traffic also need to be forward to router  
please explain

I was going to ask the same thing!  ;)

Can I assume:

Your PC --> VLAN1 --> RouterA --> Other VLANs

Your PC --> VLAN1 --> RouterB --> ?

Do routers A and B route to different networks?

Your PC --> VLAN1 --> RouterA -->

Your PC --> VLAN1 --> RouterB -->

If so are you simply asking how to set up your PC with static routes so it knows that:, and should be accessed through RouterA via the gateway and the networks, and should be accessed through RouterB via the gateway


Tried static routes as you mentioned works with window servers but one problem is with IBM server runs funny software so how can I tell my vlans 1 default gateway to route specific traffic to ip which is the router

There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on the Nortel passboard 8006.  I am not sure I can assist.

What is the "funny software"?
You can turn on a routing protocol like RIP on the 8600 and the new router on their 192.168.0.X interfaces. That way the two routers will exchange routing information for the networks they are the best path for. Either one can be the default gateway for devices on that subnet.
