Ok, here is my dilemma. I currently have a DSL line with a 861 router. What I want to do is get a CABLE connection with 5 static IP address and keep the DSL line as well for back-up. The Cable line I will be running my server off of (web hosting and such) the DSL will be used for internet for my local computers / network. I want to still include my computers and server in the same network. So here is what I am thinking.
Is it possible to have two 861s connected via one of their switch ports? Then have one with the DSL line and then the other with the cable line? Then route traffic to the cable line if it is within a certain VLAN and then route traffic to the DSL if it is in a different VLAN?
Seems kind of an around about way to do things. I am just trying to figure out how to do this the cheapest and more feature full way I can. I was currently thinking of load balancing between my DSL and cable using the cable as primary for the server and the DSL as primary for the other.
My other option right now is getting a LInksys dual-wan router. Placing a switch after the cable modem, putting one wire into my Linksys and the other into my 861. But with that, I would have to have separate networks.
