multiple internet connections across one network
Posted on 2012-09-06
Our office is running around 15 machines and we are looking at adding a second internet broadband line to the same network.
Now the reason for this is we cannot afford for the office to be without internet connection at any point. So the idea i to get the second line so that if in any case the line drops the second will be there.
At the moment the internet comes into the site and we are using a Cisco Linksys X3000 router.
The SBS server is plugged directly into the router and the router in turn is cat5e intoa w switch and piped aroundt he office.
The SBS server is handling the DHCP are we able to simply add the additional line and router to the switch? Will the router server then handle the load sharing automatically?
Many thanks in advance,
