Any suggestion help..

    I'm not quite an expert, but the following may point you in the right

    iproute2 should be able to sort based on iptables/netfilter marks.
    IPTables can trivially be used to mark the correct streams.

    See iptables(8), ip(8).

    Something like

    # ip route add to unicast 0/0 table send_with_adsl dev eth1
    # ip rule add type unicast fwmark 1 table send_with_adsl

    should work; the above is just a quicky from reading the man page, never
    had a chance to try it myself... but it should get you going.
