I am using windows server 2003. I have 2 internet connections with different ISP. I am a rookie at networking
I have 2 diff routers also.
DNS 1: 1)
DNS 2: 2)
Problem: When one internet connection is down which is connected to LAN network. and second connection is not connected to lan network as i am unable to setup. How can i setup both so when one connection is down other starts working.

I have 10 computers connected through networking. DHCP is enabled on both. Its not like i want to use both connections at the same time..second connection starts automatically or i can switch LAN wire when one is down..
