I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If the Internet connections are basic connections delivered over Ethernet, I would have both connections terminate on the ASA.

If you are running BGP with PI space, then I would have the connections terminate on the router (running BGP on the router) and then use the PI space between the router and the ASA.
