    Internet Redundancy - what switch

    Hi Guys,

    I have strange problem, I have recently taken over the IT in the Bangkok branch of a Aussie company, I have the following issue.

    We have 3 adsl internet connections, they currently all plug into a ClearOs server, this shares the internet to our clients and acts as a firewall.

    I have been asked to add more redundancy to our internet use.
    I ideally want rid of the ClearOS. I know I could do this easily with 2 cisco switches that support GLBP but would like a nice cheap way if possible.
    All three adsl lines must be used and there must be no single point of failure between traffic leaving the core switch and the internet.

    We have 1 Fixed 100mbit line here and a VDSL backup. I just put them on 2 different routers and change the gateway on DCHP clients if it ever goes down.

    Its good enough redundancy for us and keeps things simple.
