dear Spemkumar,

Thanks you for your question.

Load Balance ( i mean i have 2 ISP and the both ISP share 50%) and failover ( i mean i have 2 ISP and ISP1 active and ISP2 Backup whne the ISP1 down, ISP2 will be up automatic)

Best Regards,

hi david

if you are looking at load balance with routing protocols such BGP then i dont think 800 series will be able to do that.

But as far as redundancy/failover is concerned with 2 ISP and with NAT options you can do with 800 series routers.

With normal NAT and 2 ISPs i dont think you will be able to get the desired result of load balancing.

But i think you can segment your local lan network and do a policy based NAT which can take care of your loadbalancing (one segment of your lan using ISP1 and the other segment using ISP2).
