How do you advise to achieve that?
I need a simple solution, which doesn't have to be cheap.
I have a Cisco 1720 router, in case it can be used somehow.
You'll need a router that supports automatic rollover (I think thats the term, I'm looking right now...)
Edit: OK, here's a router that supports both Load Balancing and Failover (rollover).
There are others, you just have to search with the right terms:http://www.netgear.com/Products/VPNa...rs/FVX538.aspx
Its a Dual WAN router.
You can set for Load Balancing (using both WAN connections at once) or for Failover/Rollover (automatically switching to the other connection when one fails to keep a constant connection.
We installed one of these at a customers business about 2 months ago, they haven't had any problems since. They have both DSL and Cable, and always, one would go down at some point and they'd have to manually switch over to the other. So, we installed this sucker and they haven't called since.
