We currently have a Cisco 2800 series router that we are using as a firewall and router for out network. My question is whether it is possible to have redundant internet connections setup for load balancing and failover if one goes down. We currently pay a company to manage our Internet and phone system and they are trying to sell us a seperate device to perform this function. Isn't this possible with the 2800? Any info about this would greatly appreciated.
If you need router redundancy, than you would need another router just like the one you already have with a separate connection to the provider. If you just need link redundancy, than you can use the existing outer and have a second link to the same provider or a different provider.
