How to setup a network with 2 ISP??

By shiuhrong ·
My company is going to subscribe Broadband from 2 ISPs. I need to draw up a network plan and diagram. How am I going to connect the office network to 2 ISPs at the same time?

What I know is I need 2 router to connect to 2 ISPs. After the routers, what device should I connect in order for the whole network to run without any hiccup? I have a couple of 3COM superstack 3 baseline switches now connecting the LAN.

Or it is not possible at all to connect 2 ISPs at the same time?

well first off is a couple of questions. Why 2 ISP's?? Someone had to have some idea of using 2 ISP's for some reason. Can't answer your question without knowing that. Second is the existing network. What is its entire setup? Without those two crucial bits of information, one can not answer.

You can utilize a Cisco 2600 and with the right cards bring the isp's in to one router. Now that you have them in the 2600 you can setup a load share between the two isp's. Output on an ethernet card to the switches.

Contact Cisco and they will provide you with an equipment list and software configuration.

Good Luck Lee
