Router to handle DSL & Cable inputs?

Is anybody aware of a router for a SoHo which would allow both a Cable and a DSL web connection?  Would like it to use both simultaneously but happy to find one which will auto-sense a failure in the faster cable connection and switch to the DSL one.

The Linksys RV042, assuming you have 2 modems, will allow you to connect both. It will do automatic load balancing between the two and provide fail-over protection. i.e. if one goes down, force all traffic through the other. Works very well:

Thanks for the fast replies. Took at look at both, and chose the Linksys. MUCH less expensive, and the tech glitches seem to have been resolved by later firmware updates. Plus it load balances using my cable and new DSL connections. No tech support, but then Linksys has been known for that for at least a couple of years :[

Thanks Paul.
I have about a dozen of the RV042's scattered about with different clients and never had a problem. I find they are great.
Good luck with it.
