Hi all,

i have two 877 routers to two isp. is there anyway to configure load sharing or balancing between them? would i need another router to do that?

alternativly i have a pix sitting arround. Could it do the job?

I have this problem too.

Nikolaos,

It's hard to beat this requirement.Pix doesn't support PBR(Policy Base Routing) to do load-sharing. But I can tell you to use HSRP on that 2 routers then use PBR on those routers for backing up traffics between each other.In this case the active router will redirect some packets(depends on configuration of PBR) to the standby router.When the active router went down then the another one router should handle all traffics.

Note : BGP is a correct way to be used,indeed
