Re: How to manage two WAN and two ROUTER connections

Take a PC and put PFSense on it with 2 NIC's. Better than any off the shelf router you are going to find.

This will let you have all the devices on one network and you can load balance across your ISP's or even specify which gateway traffic goes out.

Just google pfsense and you will find the downloads. Any old PC will work for it for the most part.

I know you said you dont want to load balance but why not take advantadge of it?

Plus if you put in 3 NIC's in the box you can seperate your networks and still see them all from one place.

Pfsense is cheap and flexible-programmable and successfully used by some very swept up folks here - good support. All you need is tinker time etc. If you want a plugNplay for those requirements a Zyxel USG200 or USG300 will do you fine. Best of all techsupport is free and its in the US (not a call centre). There are many other fine business class routers but they cost way more in the long run.
