I have an 1811 router with two ISP WAN connections
Ethernet0 ip address x.x.x.x
Ethernet1 ip address y.y.y.y
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.1
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 y.y.y.1
I can PING the E0 x.x.x.x address, but not the y.y.y.y address. If I remove the first "ip route" statement, then I CAN PING the y.y.y.y address, but then I lose the ability to PING the x.x.x.x address.
Is there any way that I can PING BOTH at the same time?
(there are no dynamic routing protocols in place, no routing advertisements from the ISP or anything..)
I'm assuming that I must have at least one default route (0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0) statement configured on the router so I don't want to remove both routes because the router is many miles away and not easy to reconfigure if I lose access to it.
(Is this assumption wrong? Can I get away with not having any "ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0" statements in my config? and if so, will removing both of them probably fix my problem?)
