WAN load balancing

Two sales office connected through point-to-point leased line (2Mbps).

The management is upgrading the link with a second leased line (also 2Mbps).

In each office I am installing a Router with WIC-2T.

Can I configure the Routers to use both the lines in load-balancing, or can I have just a "primary" link and a BackUp link?

Best Regards

As long routing is set correctly, it wil load balance.

If you need speed faster than 2mbps for a single session, configure MLPPP.

I dont know where you're located or the availability of the service, but you may want to look at a metro-E connection of 10mbps. It may come out more cost effective and give you bandwidth for growth. You also wont have to pay for more facilities at your office.

Just a suggestion...
