Hi ,

I just want to know , i have two 6mbs LES connection(Different ISP) on 1841 from DR to my HO. I use HWIC 4ESW, both the line are terminated into HWIC.

In interface FastEthernet0/0 my local network is connected(192.168.54.X).I'm not using any routing protocols between my sites,only static.

My question is

Should i go for etherchannel ? or anything else ?

Correct me if i'm wrong,Eterchannel doesn't form in 10Mbps line. So wat should i do? i want to use both the lines.

Let me know

Thanks in adavance.


Re: Etherchannel

are you looking for load balancing across 2 links or something else? can you let us know exactly what your requirement is?

Re: Etherchannel

If I understand your question correctly, you are asking if you can run an Etherchannel from your 1841 router to two different ISP? thus creating one 12Meg Pipe?

An Etherchannel can only be created between two directly connected devices, and not one channel between three devices. The cisco white paper on Etherchannels should give you a better idea on this.

Is it the case that you are wanting to split (or even loadbalance) your internet traffic over the two ISP routes?
