Connecting two ports with two switches.

I have a 2960 and a 2811 with a hwic card I have one port set as 100 meg and another port set at 10 meg. Both are set to access mode. i need one port for failover (10 meg) . I can't do etherchannel on the hwic. How do I prevent a loop when I connect my second connection. While having both connections up. Should I use bpdu guard? the goal is to have one port fail over if the 100 meg goes down. And I'm currently running ospf so it should take the faster connection.

Jeffery,

See if you can use flex links on the switch:

switchport backup interface <10mb port>
