My domain name has two different IP Address from two different providers
(204.0.0.0)
(60.0.0.0)
From PC 1 trying to access www.abcd.com  it takes the (204.0.0.0) path
From PC 2 trying to access www.abcd.com  it takes the (60.0.0.0) path

Next I turned off the connection to the web server from (204.0.0.0) off to see if the request for www.abcd.com would let me access the web server from (60.0.0.0) but no luck only PC1 could access the webpage

Then I tried another test by turned off the connection to the web server from (60.0.0.0) off to see if the request for www.abcd.com would let me access the web server from (204.0.0.0) but no luck only PC2 could access the webpage but from both PC’s if I do a DNS lookup for www.abcd.com it shows me (204.0.0.0 and 60.000)
 
I thought when using the round robin technique the request for www.abcd.com would take turns hitting both IP address  did I miss something

Thanks

Your DNS resolver is holding the A record cache.

Do an ipconfig /flushdns and try again.

So would this be the best way to have a second route to access the web site
My reason for doing this is so that if my T-1 goes down people can still access the web page by just hitting refresh?

The best configuration to use for your scenario is NLB. I personally haven't tried clustering with different subnets.
