Want to configure primary and secondary routes for up/down stream traffic

    I have two Internet connections one of which has a greater downlink
    speed and the other has a greater uplink speed. They use different IP
    address blocks and I want to use the greater downlink connection as the
    DEFAULT outbound route. If the default route is not available I want
    to use the other connection. Also I want to use the faster uplink
    connection to receive data.

    Details:

    I have a Cisco 2600 series with 3 interfaces and Cisco 3500 series
    switch. The preferred uplink connection connects directly to the
    Internet and I would use these IP addresses on my external VLAN. I
    also have an internal VLAN which I would like to connect the faster
    downlink connection to. The internal VLAN connection is front ended
    with a Linksys router and uses non-routable IP addresses i.e.
    192.168.2.0.

    I want to setup the router with real IP addresses for all three
    interfaces i.e. Internet recognized and I want to connect the internal
    192 front ended network directly into the switch.

    The servers would have real Internet and 192 addresses multi-homes to
    the internal and external VLANs on the switch.

    QUESTION(S):

    Can I set a default route on the router for the directly connected to
    the Internet and a deffault route on the switch for the 192 connected
    network?

    Would this type of conneciton fail over to the direct Internet
    connection if the 192 connection was unavailable?

    Note: We would use Internet DNS entries to force incoming connections
    to the direct Internet connection AND HOPE THAT THE SWITCHES DEFAULT
    ROUTE WOULD CONTROL THE DOWNSTREAM.

    Will this work?

    After thinking about this a little more, I realize that I can set a
    default route and a persistent route.
