I am trying to configure a Cisco 2611XM router with an Ethernet card in it's NM slot so it has 3 FastEthernet interfaces.

FastEthernet0/0 is connected to Static IP address WAN connection
FastEthernet0/1 is connected to the internal LAN with 2 subnets (10.0.0.0, 255.255.255.0 and 10.1.1.0, 255.255.255.0)
FastEthernet1/0 is connected to DHCP IP address WAN connection

I don't want or need a failover connection. What I want is to send all traffic from subnet 10.0.0.0 over FastEthernet0/0 and subnet 10.1.1.0 over FastEthernet1/0

As best as I can tell I need to setup something call policy based routing but I haven't been able to get it to work properly. I can get all traffic to flow through 1 WAN or the other by making various adjustments but I can't seem to get each subnet to flow through it's own WAN. As it's configured at the moment all 10.0.0.0 clients can access the Internet and do so over FastEthernet0/0. Clients with 10.1.1.0 addresses can not access the Internet. Here are the relevant parts of my config:
