I am the IT administrator for a small para-church organization that opperates out of Dallas, TX. I have been asked to aggregate 2 ISP connections, a T1 and a DSL line, using the router leased by the T1 provider, the Modem provided by the DSL provider, and another cisco router that we will soon purchase to get the most out of our available bandwidth. Originally I was looking at a 2621XM, I had read that Load Balancing is a standard feature on all cisco routers, but then realized that 2621XM's doesnt support extra FE ports. So now we are looking at 3725 routers but i am being told that the 12.2(15)T IOS and GLBP will not do the job since GLBP cannot be emplimented to load balance between 2 ports on the same router. I'm now told that I need a 12.4(11)T IOS or later because what I need to load share between two FE ports on the same router, is PfR. I'm looking for suggestions, confirmations, configuration tips and tricks, whatever you got!
