    We are currently running Windows 2003 Server at our office, and we have both
    Cable and DSL for network redundency (if the internet goes down, we cannot
    access our databases).

    Currently, we have to manually switch out the cable for dsl if one goes
    down....

    My question is: Is there a way to connect BOTH the cable and DSL using 2
    seperate NIC's to the server, then use a 3rd NIC to supply a shared internet
    connection to the office network, so that if one is inaccessable for any
    reason the other will automatically be used?

    If this is possable, please give me a idea on how to set this up...

    Thanks!

  2. Hi,

    Use a multiple WAN router.

  3. I don't think there is a way to do this with SBS. My suggestion is that you
    get a Router that has 2 WAN ports, I have good experiences with Linksys
    RV082.
