Question description

After running for several months with a single router and a single Internet Service Provider, Netstack College wants to improve the reliability of their Internet connection. They have contracted with a second ISP so they will have two connections to the Internet, both running at the same speed, and each having its own external static IP address.

  • What does the network administrator need to do to take full advantage of the Cisco routers on each Internet connection?
  • Which routing protocol should be utilized, Routing Information Protocol (RIP-2) or Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)? Does one have an advantage over the other?
  • Should load balancing be employed? Explain why or why not.
  • How would load balancing be enabled?
  • What changes to the network topology or design must be made to incorporate the second Internet connection and Cisco router?
