Need a second router for FTP

Need a second router for FTP.
Presently we have a Cisco router as our default gateway to get internet access through a T1.
The problem is that we need to trade large CAD files with our customers and they would clog up the T1.
To fix this we want to use a separate DSL/cable connection to send docs using FTP.
Give LAN users the ability to send large files directly from their desktop.
How would we seamlessly access the FTP router when the DG is pointing to the Cisco router?
If using an alternate (second) IP address how does it switch between routers?
You could manually change the DG but that would be inconvenient.
You could put the DSL connection on a router that has two LAN ports and set one to the LAN subnet and the other to a DMZ on a different subnet. Put a PC on the DMZ and access it using remote desktop to send files.
