I will be getting business internet service installed in a couple of days and would like to prepare for it.
I will have 2 separate lines:
1 business WAN with 5 static IPs
1 residential WAN, with 1 dynamic IP.
Provider supplies CISCO 851 router for the business line, cheapo cable modem (ethernet out) for the rsidential line.
I already have 6 computers working together in a LAN.
I will configure the 851 to map the 5 static IP's to 5 machines on the LAN, that's a given. I will add switches as needed to expand the number of available ports.
Is there any way to get the 2nd WAN (dynamic IP) to map to the 6th computer in the LAN, while maintaining the LAN integrity so the 6 machines can continue sharing files and printers?
Could the residential WAN tap into the LAN somewhere at a switch perhaps?
I do not need load balancing, do not need to combine the bandwidth from the 2 WANs, and wish to maintain them separate.
I know I could set up 2 LANs ( 1 for each WAN), but those won't talk to each other.
Alternately, I'm contamplating an RV082 dual wan router. would that allow me to do the above?
thank you kindly.
