Load balancing ?

Unanswered Question
Feb 21st, 2008


Which router can provide load balancing between a T1 and Adsl connection. I would like to utilized our T1 and Adsl for our network. Also both the T1 and Adsl will be connected to a Site to Site VPN. If one fails the other still can work and the VPN will not drop. Does anybody knows which router can do the job.


I have this problem too.

Any Cisco router which has an Ethernet interface for the ADSL, a serial interface for the T1, and an interface for your inside network should be able to do load balancing between the ADSL and the T1 - assuming that you will have a static default route pointing out the T1 and another static default route pointing out the ADSL.

I would suggest that you start by looking at the Cisco 1841 router with a T1 WIC as the router to do what you want.
