Two internet connections on one network
Posted on 2011-09-05
I have a question about running two internet connections on one network. I did some seaches and found this question usually with people trying to increase bandwith. to be honest I just want to be lazy and have it use which ever one is there at the time without reconfiguring the rounter and IP aaddress. Situation is I have cable modem and a DSL modem and I sometimes swap services. I have to linksys E1000 rourters and currently have them set up as 192.168.1.1(cable) and 192.168.0.1(DSL). I usually only have one serve turned on at a time. If have not figured it out already I swap services to stay in promotional rates. I would like to have them both hooked up at the same time and have the network use whichever internet is working at the time. I also have a Linksys/Cisco SR224G wth 2 1gb ports on it if this help at all. Do I need to buy a dual Lan Router or can I work with what I have. Networking is not my strong point so you may have to ask me more questions to anwer my question.
