Load Balancing Router Setup
I'm having an interesting problem setting up a load balancing router.
Ive attached a picture try help explain the problem.
We have 2 Cisco ADSL Routers supplied by our ISP.
They each come with 5 assigned static IP Addresses.
What I'm trying to do is plug a Load Balancing Router (LBR) into both of them and then use that to route traffic down the relevant line.
- Internet Traffic down Router 1
- Email traffic down Router 2
etc... (Obviously it'll be more than that)
Now the problem I'm having is that I can plug PC 1 & PC 2 into Router 1 or Router 2, assign them a static IP and everything works.
However, as soon as I plug in the LBR into Router 1 and assign it one of the static IPs, PC 1's internet dies. The LBR and PC2's (via LBR) internet still work.
Similarly with anyway I move them around, as soon as the LBR is assigned a static IP on one of the internet routers, all the other connections to that router lose their connection.
I'm assuming its some setting on the LBR that clashing or causing routing errors for the router, but have no idea where to start?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
