Simple Load Sharing With Static Routes

The scenario given below, L3 switch connected to 2 local LAN routers which in turn connected to internet router.

I would like to distribute the internet traffic from local LAN(L3 switch) on both RTRA and RTRB by adding static routes on L3 switch. How can I achieve this without configuring the routing protocol.

---------------RTRA----

L3SWITCH-------RTRB----INTERNET-RTR

Use static routes w/ CEF enabled.

Example;

Router(config)#ip cef

Router(config)#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.0.0.1

Router(config)#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.1.200

Hi ,

configure two static routes , destination as internet ip and nexp hop as routers ip which is connecting to switch.

Hi

If its simple internet traffic do keep in mind about the local NAT commands which has to be configured accordingly with route-maps here.

If you are having your own block of ip address space then better to run bgp between the providers.

Most providers will not provide BGP if you are a stub routing domain... but if you do have multiple exit points with multiple providers then yes this would be an option.
