Re: Multihoming an end user
Another question for the original poster: How is it that u have two DSL
lines from two providers? Usually one provider controls the local loop, and
in that case both DSL lines would be going out over the *same* CO, DSLAM,
ATM, etc until it branched out to the ISP's network.
ISP1 is a 3Mbps wireless connection to a local ISP. They in turn have a
bonded T1 to AT&T. As far as I know, this is their only connection.
(not speaking BGP). ISP2 is a 1.5 Mbps DSL through the local phone
Thinking bigger scope, we have a T1 connection to our parent company
used for VoIP applications. They also have a T1 or greater connection
to the internet. If we move to a T1 locally, we might be able to
convince them to split a new /24 and route BGP over these two links.
This is however, beyond my call.
