Hi ! I have an leased line connection & ADSL connection in my network. Here are my client  pc network card settings ip 192.168.0.234/255.255.255.0 [ for leased line local area connection] & adsl internet wireless card [192.168.1.3/255.255.255.0] .

You can try the Netgear Prosafe Router which "has dual wan ports and it works great." It has load balancing and fault tolerance features, and you can send different protocols through different wan interfaces if desired. See more information at this link: http://www.netgear.com/products/details/FVS124G.php 

Also recommended is the Hawking Technologies H2BR4 which is another dual wan router and is much less expensive, but I haven't personally used it.

Lastly, D-Link makes the DI-LB604 4-Port Load Balancing Router.  It is also on the less expensive side, and features 2 WAN ports with Load balancing.

Have a great day.

The answer to that is simple: You cannot do this with windows.  Microsoft never coded the features necessary to do this sort of setup into their operating system.
