I have a remote office that is connected to the data center via a point to point T1. We had a DSL Internet connection installed at the remote office last week for Internet bound traffic. The T1 router is the default gateway for the remote office. I added the following static route on the T1 router, to direct all Internet traffic to the DSL router/gateway, and traffic went out the DSL to the Internet fine.
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1
I added an administrative cost of five to the static route and another static route with a higher administrative cost as a backkup. I would like to send Internet traffic across the T1 if the DSL goes down.
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 5
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.1.1.1 254
They are still able to connect to the Internet via the DSL router/gateway, however if we unplug the cable going to the DSL router, Internet bound traffic is not routed across the T1.
What am I doing wrong?
