    Iproute2 sounds like the way to go. Here is a good tutorial on setting
    up a linux router for 2 ISPs:

    Subject: decent loadbalancing with 2 different ISP's with minimum risks

    Due to a little mistake i now have 2 broadband connections at home and
    somehow i want to balance them (2mbit + 1 mbit). I wondered what the
    most efficient way of doing this is and with possible security risks
    involved.

    At the moment i have a nice setup with a statefull designed iptables
    firewall and i want to keep it that way. I've googled some and i found
    some vague tools for windows that i really don't trust (well the entire
    windows part, but that's something else) and a router that has 2 wan
    connectors that claims that can do it. Since i also have wlan at home in

    a wlan-dmz at my gateway i just want to insert a 4th nic into my box and

    do some configging.

    My current setup includes:
    debian 3.0 stable 2.4.26 kernel
    3 networks: wlan, internal, external
    statefull iptables-script

    my future setup needs to include just an extra network namely external2
    :) without too many implications such as running a proxy with patches
    which should be the last option to consider since my gateway isn't all
    that fast :)

    Any help welcome,
    Regards,
    P.Deelman
