How to keep access to LAN and add a faster ISP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • A friend in the health care field works in an office that supplies her with a LAN connection that has internet and some useful local resources (some shared folders, and connection to a private database).

    However, the internet connection is slow as snail. She wants to subscribe to her own ISP but retain access to the local resources on the LAN, how can this be done? How do you combine the LAN and the ISP, and once combined, how can she route her internet traffic to the faster ISP, without also routing other people's internet request as well?

  • Hello,

    for local access there is no relation with ISP. Access to local ressources will not be lost.

    How do you combine the LAN and the ISP, and once combined, how can she route her internet traffic to the faster ISP, without also routing other people's internet request as well?

    They can not be combined. To speed internet access, increase your bandwidth and make sure that you are pointing to the ISP DNS servers as primary DNS server. If a local DNS server is configured then make your ISP DNS server set as a forwarder and use the local DNS server as primary DNS server.
