    Does anyone know of a way to make dual internet links fault tolerant for inbound traffic. Outbound traffic is a piece of cake. What I want to do is have http://www.computer-galllery.com point to static IP1 at my first ISP. Then I want to have http://www.computer-galllery.com point to static IP2 at my second ISP. If either link fails, traffic should route via the other link. I know BGP is a solution, but it won’t work on DSL. Someone suggested some sort of DNS idea where we host the dns locally and push out zone changes to our ISP name servers. If a problem occurs, we push out a zone change the changes IP numbers from ISP1 to ISP2. The only problem is that this is just a wild idea. Does anyone have any practical suggestions?
