I have been trying to locate this information on your site but was unable to find anything in particular about this issue.

This is my current situation, I currently have a Cisco 2524 router which has once connection, which then connects to a fatpipe (performs load balancing, DNS) , which then goes to my PIX 515 firewall which in return goes to two HP 4108 switches which go to my LAN and DMZ.

What I would like to do is add an additional line on a separate router so that I can load balance between the two lines for redundancy and more efficient use of my network. What I need to know is how can I set this up so that both lines can be utilized on my LAN at the same time, would this have to be setup at the firewall or at the switch? How would I setup my servers to use both lines would I need two nic cards each with static IP?s? Would I need a second PIX for the second line to set this up? Nay help would be appreciated, thank you for your time.

What you do - use your FatPipe to combine connections. Install (if you don't have already) a hub between your FatPipe box and your Cisco router, and connect your second Internet router to this hub. You need only one PIX firewall, DMZ, and LAN. For any particular steps you should take to configure your FatPipe box with an additional Internet connection, check their web site (

Good luck,
