What would be the best physical layout to split a T1 connect? I want to implement to two routers in a active/standby role on one side of T1, in case one router dies i want the standby to come and use the T1. I've tried to implement this in a lab to no success with a T1 cable in each router going into a hub. What type of hardware or cabling do i need to make this connection work?

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

CODEX Muxes are what I used along with CODEX Modems, the muxe is what determined signal drop and activated the standby modem. Check with your vendor or contact CODEX themselves.

    Check if your routers support failover Or you can create a static route on each computer that points to the other router but with a higher weight so that it does not use that unless the other is down.

    You can't 'share' a T1 between two devices. Your only choice is to purchase a second T1 connection or use a warm-spare setup (second router configured and powered on, when failure occures move T1 over to second router). Another option is to use a multiplexer and logically split the T1 into two 512K links, each going to different router. This entails having one link use timeslots 1-12 of the T1 and the other using 13-24. The multiplexer is the key. The single T1 will go into this device, it will logically split the T1, and push two serial connections out to the routers. I've set up many of these in the past.
