Cisco router 1811w failover does not work? Please help?

By devitocoke ·
I have a cable internet connection going into FE0 and DSL into FE1 (backup).
When the cable connection goes down, the DSL does not takeover. From what I have been reading online, these are the lines of code that seems to be responsible for failover:

ip sla 1
icmp-echo 24.233.167.168 source-ip 69.65.81.139
timeout 1500
frequency 30
ip sla schedule 1 life forever start-time now
ip sla 2
icmp-echo 205.152.144.23 source-ip 74.164.15.103
frequency 10
ip sla schedule 2 life forever start-time now
ip sla 3
icmp-echo 24.233.167.168 source-ip 69.65.81.139
timeout 1500
frequency 5
ip sla schedule 3 life forever start-time now

track 111 rtr 3 reachability
!
track 122 rtr 2 reachability
delay down 30 up 5
!
track 123 rtr 1 reachability
delay down 30 up 5

I do not understand the code, so please help. Also how do I edit the code, for instance using the backspace to erase a line and retype new code. I was able to access the router using a console cable and Hyperterminal. The only code changes I was able to do was copy code and paste to host, but towards the end of the code I lose some letters. I would rather use something to just get in and backspace a line and write new code.

You cannot paste code into a Cisco router, you must enter the commands

You cannot just paste code into it, you need to login and enter the appropriate router commands. It's running the Cisco IOS operating system.

There are important commands like:

enable
show running-config
configure terminal

I would start with a guide like:

Failover

Thank you I will read up on the resources you gave me. However can you quickly review the code and let me know if there is anything in it that would cause the failover not to work?
