How do I configure Dual WAN on Cisco 1721 for sharing bandwidth and failover?

I have a Cisco 1721 with a Wic1-ADSL and a WIC 4ESW installed.  I have DSL service and fixed-wireless service.  I have a /29 for both connections.  I would like a config which bundles both connections to share the bandwidth, but also will allow for all traffic to pass to one or the other in case of failure.  I have another device in the house which provides DHCP, wireless, etc so if the combination would just feed a single private IP address (172.30.30.1/30 for example), I can setup my internal router to do the rest.  

I currently have the router configured (not by me) to use the fixed-wireless connection full time, and only failover to the DSL if the wireless goes down.  This works fine, but I hate to pay for the DSL which I will only use a couple times a year in this method.  It would be much better for me if I used both connections concurrently and it would failover to using a single connection in the event that either would fail.

I can provide current config details if necessary, but can anyone help me with this config?

You can get some primitive outbound load balancing by configuring your router with two default routes

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ip.of.wireless.network
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 ip.of.dsl.network

Good Luck

Thanks for the suggestion, but I need a little more help than that.

I think this document (http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk648/tk361/technologies_configuration_example09186a00808d2b72.shtml) describes pretty closely what you are trying to do.

If not let me know how it differs
