I have two 3750's joined together with a stackwise cable. I have a connection between one of the 3750's physical port and a gateway router. Last week one of the 3750's failed due to power issues, which caused me to lose connectivity to the Gateway Router. I am looking at using either weighted static routes :(, or VRRP :)to create redundancy between these 3 network elements. I have read that I can use VRRP for master and backup interfaces on the same node, instead of master and backup routers? If so, can anyone help me with this solution, as I have no lab to test this.
Sounds like you're making this much hard than it has to be.
