that means if the router is faulty, there is no access anymore.
if you have a spare available, that can work, but it depends how much =

will cost for your company
an interruption of internet access (no mail, no corp web if hosted =

locally, etc) for the time you put the spare in place.

IMHO the type of architecture and redundancy for internet access depends =

on the cost of the interruption
and the delay that is allowed per year (1 hour, 1 day)

hope this'll help
