Dual WAN Router
Mar 30, 2010, 1:14 AM
I have been having a lot of internet drops and I am trying to find a way out of this.
I have decided to purchase a Dual WAN Router to connect two different ISP (one DSL and One Cable) and use one as a backup for my internet.
I do not need any VPN or other feature, However my main concern is the time that it takes till the backup networks comes up and starts working and I need that to be on the order of less than 1s.
I have found two different models:
1. Cisco RV042 4-port 10/100 VPN Router
2. SonicWALL TZ 100 TotalSecure
Offcourse item 1 is a lot cheaper and that matters.
Do you have any recommendation on any of these devices? Any other Dual WAN router that you could suggest?

Why is the internet dropping? That is what you need to find out. Is it on the ISP side or your side? If its the ISP side then I would hound them until its fixed.

I have been struggling with ATT for over 2 months, spending more than 5 hours per week over the phone and have had 4 different techs on site and it does not work.
My Cable is comcast and it has less drop but every now and then it drops for half an hour
I cannot afford to be offline even for 10seconds thats why I really need this system
