How to put 2 gateways on one network??

By vigo98 ·
Hello all. I'm a junior network admin looking for an answer to a "simple question".
Here is the screnario:
On existing network( about 160 users) there is a radio WAN link to a database server. The company is also using this link to connect to Internet.
They have desided to run a dedicated line just for Internet now, but they want to keep all the database traffic on the old WAN link.
As I understand, there have to be two routers put on the same network. One for WAN link and one for new SDSL link to the Internet.
But how to split the traffic between them?

Thanks to all,
Victor Gosyatnikov

Let the router route for you

by paul.jones In reply to How to put 2 gateways on ...

you can configure the router to pass all traffice for the database to use the port that the database radio link connects to the router and all other network traffic to the internet. the inside port on the router will be the gateway, the two outside ports< internet and database> will have the traffice sent to them by how the router is configured.
