    hi
    we are running a network on Work Group rather than domain, we have two
    internet connections running in the network some pcs are with one connection
    and some are with the other one, when a internet connection gets down we
    have to change the default gatewyas of all the respective pcs we want that if
    a connection gets down then the 2nd connection must control all the network,
    give me some solution either i use load balancing router or any thing else

    Best regards
