Just like to confirm that if you have Two ISPs connected to two different routers on your network the 1st Router has a static IP address of 192.168.16.10 and the 2nd Router has a static IP Address of 192.168.16.20. Are you able to configure computers as to which gateway to use on the network? Failsafe or Load Balancing is not required.

Recommended Answers

Yes, you can configure hosts on the 192.168.16.x subnet to use either as their gateway.

Not sure why you are mentioning failsafe or load balancing. There is no relation to that in this scenario.

Hi

If you are using Cisco routers you can use a protocol called HSRP to load balance between the two. basically if creates a single 'virtual' gateway for you to configure on the end user machines and the protocol will load balance the traffic between the two routers
