Hello,


We have a lease line for our internet using a Cisco 2851.  We are soon to be getting a 2nd line which we would line to use and load balance the lines, how can we do this?  I was thinking of getting a 2nd router and creating a HSRP but wouldn't this then act as active and standby?

Hi Andy



Can you share that currently leased line detail whether it is  T1 or E1, Serial , Ethernet ( Interfaces )


& whether you have plane to take 2nd link from same SP or different SP.

Hi Andy


For Ethernet , You can do load balancing using routing.


If you SP is agree to run routing protocol then you can use any routing protocol for load balancing. ( Prefer EIGRP)


Or else you can add two default route with same AD.


ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 X.X.X.X

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 X.X.X.X
