If I have 2 routers, both with connections out the building to the same place, How would I load balance these ? my clients all use the same router for there default gateway !! can someone tell me how to do this using eigrp and also statics ?
MHSRP is mulitple groups in HSRP. You can loadbalance on same subnet also. Like if you have clients in subnet 192.168.10.x/24 subnet and virtual gateway for them is 192.168.10.1 you can split few your clients pointing to another virtual gateway like 192.168.10.2 in other hsrp group.
Suppose you have 100 clients all pointing to single gateway which is 192.168.10.1 now what you can do is configure 2 groups in HSRP and make one group active on one router and standby on second router and second group active on second router and standby on first router.
Your 50 clients can have one gateway which points to active first router and 50 other clients will point to second gateway which is active on second router.
In this way your network load from clients will split on 2 routers.
Let me try to explain you in detail with sample configurayion
Router A Configuration
RouterA# configure terminal
RouterA(config)# interface fa0/0
RouterA(config-if)# ip address 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.0
RouterA(config-if)# standby 1 ip 192.168.10.3
RouterA(config-if)# standby 1 priority 110
RouterA(config-if)# standby 1 preempt
RouterA(config-if)# standby 2 ip 192.168.10.4
RouterA(config-if)# standby 2 preempt
Router B Configuration
RouterB# configure terminal
RouterB(config)# interface fa0/0
RouterB(config-if)# ip address 192.168.10.2 255.255.255.0
RouterB(config-if)# standby 1 ip 192.168.10.3
RouterB(config-if)# standby 1 preempt
RouterB(config-if)# standby 2 ip 192.168.10.4
RouterB(config-if)# standby 2 priority 110
RouterB(config-if)# standby 2 preempt
What I am trying to explain is 192.168.10.3 is active on router A and 192.168.10.4 is active on router B.
So what you can do is for suppose you have 100 clients , assign 50 clients gateway address as 192.168.10.3 and rest 50 clients gateway address as 192.168.10.4 in this way clients having gateway address as 192.168.10.3 will hit router A and rest of the clients having gateway 192.168.10.4 will hit router B and in this way you can achieve load balancing in same subnet.
Also if Router A or B goes down other router will take care of rest of all the clients so you will achieve redundancy as well as load balancing.
