Load balancing
Greetings.. I am considering what equipment I need for my project. I have to load balance between two connections to the same ISP. The question I have is simply, if I can use a Cisco 2811 router, using the fa0/0 - 1 to connect to the ISP and use the internal switch module for my networks ? I have never worked with integrated switch module before, but it would possibly make my task easier, as the load balancing configurations for BGP are a bit more complex for two routers and I also need to supply my users with dhcp.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That is exactly what you need to do. The switch module works exactly as you anticipate, and then you can do the BGP config on the router to achieve your solution.
