VRRP deployment questions


Im investigating changing our current internet - router - firewall - switch configuration and utilising VRRP.

We currently have a 10/10mb LL, so NTE to a Cisco 1921 router with ADSL backup in the cisco.  We then have a cisco asa 5505 connected to the router and then two ports (e0/0 and e0/1) on the asa connected to an HP L3 switch two vlans.

We are looking at connecting a juniper SRX 150 and separate adsl backup router along with the existing asa firewall directly into the switch.  I believe we will need to configure another separate vlan on the HP switch for these 3 items?  If this is the case can someone explain how this will work or point me in the right direction?

I dont see how VRRP fits your picture. Do you have 2 internet facing routers or 2 asa firewalls that you want to keep one idle until first one fails?

just the one firewall, but two routers.
But they cannot take over eachothers task. There is no VRRP in the picture.

the routers should be able to..?
You switch off one router, configure gateway IPs on other router and it routes traffic between same networks
VRRP automates this action between routers.
