Do I need a special switch "Small Network Setup - Examp

#1
In your "Small Network Setup - Example" in the FAQ section,

http://www.voipfoneuserforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2024

you show two routers connected to the same switch. I have never seen such a set up before.

So,

1. Does such a set up need any special switch?
2. When both broadband connections are active, do I get double the bandwidth?
3. How does the switch know which broadband connection to use?
4. What happens if one of the broadband connection - especially the one with DHCP disabled - fails?

Thanks and Regards,

No - any will do. I have a personal preference for HP Procurve.
2. When both broadband connections are active, do I get double the bandwidth?
You get whatever bandwidth they work at normally. The two connections are physically seperate and independent of each other.
3. How does the switch know which broadband connection to use?
It switches according to the IP address it sees for the gateway. The phones have a different one to the PCs
4. What happens if one of the broadband connection - especially the one with DHCP disabled - fails?
The phones will stop working! When that happens our network detects the phones not registering and failover to whatever PSTN or mobile you registered with us. As you have 2 ADSL circuits you can then reconfigure the phones to use the working connection if you wish.
