1841 ISR Backup/Load Balancing

Hi All,

I'm about to purchase an 1841 ISR with a HWIC-4ESW (4port switch). On each of the two built in F/E ports i'm going to put a DSL link with static IPs from different ISPs. Can I set up F/E 1 to perform backup/load balancing for F/E 0? Will basic EIGPR routing work in this senario?

Thanks in advance,

Don

Re: 1841 ISR Backup/Load Balancing

Hi

HWIC-4ESW acts as normal switch ports which is available in the switches.

you wont be able to assign ips to the F/E ports instead you can create SVIs and have them assigned with the ips.

Also when it comes to loadbalancing you can have 2 equal cost routes which takes care of that but if you want to have redundancy then better consider to make use of tracking feature since the F/E port will remain up though you have some probs with the line.

In this case with 2 equal cost routes the traffic thru the faulty link will be blackholed(dropped).
