Hi Krishna

Can you tell me whether you are running eigrp in your lan or in the wan ? can you give more inputs on how the routers are connected internally in local lan?

Hi Krishna,

Do you mean failover with the service provider on each router? Or do you mean failover between your routers toward each one of the service providers?

Are the Cisco 1800 routers connected? Are you running a routing protocol with the service provider?

If you want to achieve failover like HSRP on a single router towards one of the service provider, then this is controlable by the routing protocol used.

If you want to achieve failover between you routers, if you want one of the 1800 routers takes precedence over the other, then your 1800 has to be connected and is also controlled by the routing protocol configuration.

Please let us know more about your current design and if this achieve your objective
