Dual default gateways on 2611

I have a 2611 with two ethernets to two different gateways. It currently has 10.191.1.253 for default gateway, and the other gateway is 10.192.1.253. I want it to automatically switch to 10.192.1.253 when 10.191.1.253 is unavailable.

I have the following:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.191.1.253 1

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.192.1.253 5

But that doesn't seem to be working.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: Dual default gateways on 2611

It will not work like this. Both routes are the same but I suppose you mistyped an IP adress. You need to run a routing protocol to make the router adjust to changes in the network. Try to install the primary route throug EIGRP or so and define a floating static for the second one, i.e. with a distance that is higher than the EIGRP distance to the primary gateway:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.192.1.253 130
