Windows 7 Handing multiple gateways for Internet connection
I have two different Internet Service Provider (ISP).
The first ISP router is 192.168.0.1
The second ISP router is 192.168.0.2
I want to know if I set 192.168.0.2 as a secondary default gateway in windows 7 pro. with metric 10. ( Tcp IP properties / advance TAB / bottom add another default gateway)
will windows 7 pro, be able to tell if Router1 - 192.168.0.1 internet is down and it should start routing the traffic VIA Router-2 192.168.0.2.
I had bad experience with routers that have multiple WAN port they never did the Job well. I want to know if I can use windows to solve the problem.
also if Router1 is back online will it go back to it or stick to Router2 until it restarts? what exactly is Windows 7 Routing rules for multiple gateways if internet is down in one of them?
If this is not the way to do it, what would be my 2nd option, and what type of router I should use.
*note if router1 internet is down, the router is still up and responding. just no internet connection
