Question

Locked

2 ISP connections.

By TobeJ ·
Hello,

I need to setup a site with 2 different ISP providers. Both ISP's will use seperate routers, but connect back to the same switch (No V-lans. The routers and PC's will have IP's statically set etc. The only issue that I have right now is what abou the printers.I have 3 networked printers and all PC's need access to them. The IP's of the printers will be manually set also, which means that only 1 side will see the printers.

Any ideas?

TX for help

That does not make sense.

You said: "ISP's will use separate routers, but connect back to the same switch". So if all the computers are attached to this switch, could you not have access to the printers also?.
Or have another router that piggy backs between the two routers in question. Just a thought.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

Thanks for the reply...

The reason why I thought that it would not see the printer is because the printer would be setup with one ISP subnet - i.e 10.45.X.X, this is OK for all PC's connected to that subnet from that ISP provider. But the PC's on the other ISP subnet - i.e 10.46.X.X would not be able to get to it, (10.45.X.X) correct? Also, there is no DNS server here.

Again, thanks for your help.

So if you have two networks, get another router to link both networks.

So you have two networks. You can have another router to connect these two networks together. Just set up the router as "adhoc" (piggy back). and then you be able to get the printers to work on either network. Hope this helps you some what.

Thanks for your response,

So just add a router on the LAN side of of the network, don't configure it with any IP from any of the ISP's? Will the 2 routers connect directoy to the 3rd router, or will I just connect the 3rd router to the local switch?

Again, thanks for your help.
