I've been following the threads on cable/dsl and this topic seems to creep up every once in a while and disappear. At this point, I still have cable as a primary connection and dsl as a backup, but switch over manually when cable goes down (switch the network cable from cable modem to dsl modem). I'm still looking for a better solution to this that actually works. I've read about the nexland and hawking routers but both seem to have problems that make them no better than the manual switching method. Has anyone tried using 2 nic cards, one to each isp? Is this possible & what would it take to make it work?
