c1700 and load balancing alone?

Unanswered Question
Jul 19th, 2007

Hey, I have a customer that wants a replacement for his Mikrotik routing system that did not play well with multiple gateways. I was looking into an affordable solution and the 1700 series router caught my eye.

This is the solution I am planning on going with and I was wondering if it could handle fail over to multiple gateways. I am new to IOS, but I assume that can be programmed into the interface with the appropriate ISO version, correct?

If I could be directed toward some documentation, that would be great! Thanks

I have this problem too.

Hello most of the 1700 series router are end-of-sale now. I would suggest you use the 1841 modular router for the same. Yes this router can handle the multiple gateways and same can be matched based on your requirement.

Please see the datasheet for 1841 and what all are supported:

Please find the 1800 series router configuratiion guide:
