    Scenario.... Leased line @ 10Mbps and ADSL onsite....

    Plan is to install an 1841 router with 1 ADSL WIC as a backupand use the two onboard FE ports...
    1 connected to the LAN
    1 connected to Leased Line (rather than buying a WIC card)

    Would this setup work? As i have not done this before, can you use the onboard FE ports for WAN connectivity like that?

    Cheers

    As long as your leased line is presented to you on ethernet this will be no problem.

    Yes, its presented as Ethernet and im presuming it wont need authenticating so should be a case of just plug in, assign IP and off i go!

    Thanks for yur reply! much apreciated!

    Yep just VLAN them off from each other.

    Also bear in mind that alot of ISP just send kit to site now and expect you to plug in there Managed Router and then let them know to enable the port which will be presented as your WAN connection.

    Out of interest what did you use for a failover mechanism? Floating static default route?

    Not sure yet, floating static only deals with physical WAN failure so may go with PBR verifying next hop reachability...... anyone got any other thoughts out there?

    It actually turns out the have ordered me (well... the customer) a new shiny 1941 to play with instead of the 1841! :biggrin
