This is more of a routing question than an SBS question.
Is the Diginet line an internet line (complete access to the internet) or a
direct point to point line from your office to the other company (not
through the internet)? And if it is an interent line, is there a VPN tunnel
to the other company?
With two separate internet connections, as you've described, it become
complex to setup. It would be easier to simply have one router with the
ability to connect to your DSL line and the Diginet line. This way there's
only one gateway on the machines.
If there are two routers, and assuming both internal interfaces on the
routers are set to your DMZ (the network between the SBS and the Netgear),
one of them will need to be the default. One way is if you made the Cisco
router as the default gateway on the SBS, and not sure if this will work,
but I don't see why not, is set a static route rule on the Cisco router so
that when traffic needs to go to the other company's network, it will route
it to them, but if the traffic needs to go to the internet, it will send it
to the Netgear router to use the DLS line.
This of course is complex, and if not familiar with Cisco commands or
lacking routing knowledge, it can be daunting. I would suggest to contact
your Diginet provider and ask them for assistance.
My thought is if Diginet's line is an internet line with a VPN tunnel to the
other company, why not simply use the Diginet line for internet access and
dump the DSL line?
