Need a switch / router for automatic fail over between ISPs.

For my home business I end up having both FiOS and the local cable company as my ISPs.  I have some servers, but these don't need to be public facing so much as just need constant reliable internet access.  While I have some technical acumen, I'm far from a network admin.  Anyway, what I'd like is to have a switch or router that can detect a failure outage in one ISP and switch over to the other.  Does such a thing exist on the small business side of things?  Any model / manufacturer references would be welcomed.

I guess your budget is not big. Cisco do models as well as draytek for small ones. We use to do adsl to sdl and that was a zxyel router. What is your budget.
I have set up the Cisco RV082 for several of my clients.  This router has dual WAN with failover and is configured with a graphical user interface (no command line needed).  It comes with a built in 8 port switch, they also have 4 port and 16 port models.

My budget is probably 1-2K (US $)
I would use a sonicwall firewall. You can do both failover or bandwidth load balancing.

sonicwalls are also very reliable
