I've just ordered a FTTC connection along with a second phone line (from Plusnet). I'd like to organise things so that if the FTTC connection goes down that I can automatically failover to a basic ADSL service running with a different ISP on the other line - as reliable internet access is very important for my work. Quite a few routers seem to offer multiple-WAN connections (dual-WAN/triple-WAN/quad-WAN), but most of the blurb seems to discuss more about failover to a 3G connection or another ethernet port rather than failover between FTTC/VDSL2 (via the Openreach modem) and ADSL2+ on another line.
Would the Draytek Vigor 2850 do everything that I want i.e. switch between the Openreach FTTC modem on an ethernet port and it's own internal ADSL2+ on the other line if the FTTC breaks down? Does it switch automatically in a pretty much seamless fashion or is there a big delay and lots of lost packets while it switches over? Are there better choices out there?
Thanks for any help/suggestions/corrections.
