OSPF and GOLR problem

Hi everyone!

I have come upon a problem.

I attached my topology (simplified).

The problem is, both router2 and router3 use NAT translation (witch works). The networks that needs to be translated is located on router 1. I have set both router2 and router3 gateway of last resort to there own FA0/0 interface.

When a network on router1 wants to access the Internet it sends it to router2 GOLR (witch is right) and everything works. Now to the problem. I want redundancy. If router2 FA0/0 goes down. Router1 still thinks of router2 as its last resort and router 3 never jumps in to play. Router2 won't send packages to router 3 ether.

Router 2 is the DR (lowest loopback?)

Hope you understand what I mean, I feel its really messy.. My English isn't the best in the world ether.

Post your configuration from all the routers if possible.
