Hello there,

I have internet from 2 ISP at my location and I want to be able to use both the internet. I mean when one gets disconnected. I should be able to switch to the other ISP. I want my users to have the freedom to use any of the 2 ISP. How can I manage or setup this requirements

cheers

Hello There,
 
A medium spec router or firewall can do that, Like a failover method or load distribution method using recent firewalls like watchdog, Cyberroam,Cisco,

Tnx
