You mentioned "PVC's"...is there more than 1 ? How many ? Are they costed the same (i.e. a routing protocol would see them as equal cost paths to the corporate HQs) ?
If you need to support 2 LANs you may be able to just put a secodary IP on the single Ethernet. This will depend on your Layer 2 design (how many switches) and how many users (don't want to overload the LAN with broadcasts).
I have two PVC's back to the corporate office ( two different provider T's back at the corporate office, the second PVC at the remote office is not being used, only used if the first PVC goes down).
I have a political war going on at the remote office. Half of the office are corporate employees, half are non-employees. Each group complaining about bandwidth usage. I want to bump up the bandwidth and not have to go through the process of ordering a second circuit for that office.
The CIR is 256, see remote & Frame router config below. I also have another idea. Can I upgrade the router so that I can support two Ethernet connections and have each ethernet port use different timeslots.
No, you don't have a mutli-channel controller in this router, so you wont be able to break up the channels.
You can have another PVC put in and then make routing changes to ensure employee traffic from the head-end goes over PVC1 and non-employee traffic from the head-end goes over PVC2. That can depend a lot on your routing protocol (EIGRP is good at this).
Another problem will be determining the source of the traffic when it comes in the Ethernet. Here you'll have to do policy routing. If traffic is from employees, policy-route on PVC1...if traffic is from non-employees, policy route on PVC2.
In actuality, I think the easist way is to apply some QoS...find out what traffic is most important and make that the priority. However, you have a 256k circuit...if your using almost all of that, you need a BW upgrade, not QoS.
