router configuration help

Unanswered Question

i have a point to point t1 that has a router on each end, at the remote office side of the point to point my company just installed a DSL connection for there internet.

How do i get all www traffic to go from the router to the dsl for internet connection?

I have attached a copy of the configuration of the remote office sides router.

It normally would not be too difficult, but in your case you have two default routes configured already - one pointing to the LAN and the other pointing to the T1/WAN connection.

I imagine that prior to having the DSL available for Internet access you were using an Internet connection at your data center/main office. Now that you have the DSL line, do you still need that default route?

What about the default route pointing inward to the LAN?



your right before the dsl was available the remote office used the point to point for there internet connection. I do not know alot about a router but the way that it looked to me was this

ip route was the route that pointed all unknown traffic to my end of the point to point. They will still need to pass data across the point to point but any www traffic should go out

ip route was an attempt by me to change internet traffic. Which did not work.

Thank you

I see, so that route is the one you installed to support the DSL connection.

Have you removed the default pointing to your WAN?

Can you post the route table?

"sh ip route"...

You should add back your default route:

ip route

and remove your old default route:

no ip route

If you make the following changes on the remote router...

no ip route

ip route

Then (based on the routing table you provided) traffic for the internet would use the DSL connection. Traffic for the following subnets would still use the Point-To-Point:

So, based on your configs, I assume that the users default gateway is What type of router is Mainly, why don't you terminate the DSL connection into your Cisco router?

"by removing the old route will this effect any of my data traffic that is coming back to my office?"

It should not. All directly connected and EIGRP routes will continue to carry local traffic and any other IP's that are not in your routing tables will go to
