i need a router that can handle dual WAN and loadsharing please. Stable good uptime and affordable price.
Watch Question

any cisco router with two WIC interfaces will work just fine.
Or if you have a spare computer then install linux. Read the following

what type of circuit/handoff do you have from your ISP?  b/c both of knightrider's solutions are for ethernet handoffs.  I assumed since you were talking about WAN links that you had a PRI.
one more for ethernet


Its affordable


are the linksys models any good
the reviews for those others were not so hot.

Linksys has a "commercial" line of routers the RV series which includes the RV042 at a very affordable price, about $200 US It offers dual WAN fail-over and load-balancing features as well as DMZ option (instead of dual WAN), and numerous VPN functions such as site to site, PPTP client, and it's own QuickVPN IPSec client. A very dependable unit. I have installed more than 20 of these with no failures.
