backup ethernet internface on 1605

Does anyone know of a way to configure a second ethernet interface on a router to backup the first ethernet interface (based on a treshold, or certain condition being met). DDR won't apply here, i think, because it applies to Synchronous and Asynchronous interfaces only.

Re: backup ethernet internface on 1605

We are working on the same issue...using ethernet interfaces for failover can be tricky..In our instance, we are connected to two different DSL lines. The issue is that if one DSL line goes down, the ethernet interface connected to the DSL still appears to be UP so the failover never occurs. This is probably going to require a routing protocol of some type - probably BGP...I'll watch this thread with interest.....
