Routing traffic

Hi All,

In the office we have all our computer connected to one network, but we need a request to a certain IP address to route through one ADSL line, while we need any other traffic to route through another ADSL line. What equipment would we need to do this? I assume we need a router, but what sort

What are each of the ADSL lines connected to? You could have one router with three ports - one for the internal network and one for each of the ADSL lines that handles routing, or a router on each ADSL line. You just then need to configure the routing tables correctly.

1 adsl line is a normal home line, and the other is an adsl line where the other end is connected to a company who provides us with some software, but the software gets data which is only available from their servers via their adsl line.

but basically I just need a router capable of adding a routing table, and connect the lan switches and the 2 adsl modems to it?

Your going to want to look for something that supports "Policy Routing".
