  • How to build a fail-over connection

    Hello everyone,

    I have a scenario with two different Broadband Routers. I have two ADSL Broadband connections from two different providers, both are connected to separate Broadband Routers.
    How can I build a 'fail-over' system in a Small Business 2003 Server with these two Routers in case one of the Routers fails or worse the Provider fails...
    One of the Routers is now used as our 'main' Router and the other one is used as a 'hotspot' in our showroom..

    Has anyone have any ideas for this?

    With best regards,

    For Fail-Over you may consider Demand Dial Routing.
    Technet article on on DDR (Pretty comprehensive).
    I don't know anything about (you or your) computers.
    Research/test for yourself when listening to free advice.
