Two internet connections on one network

I have a question about running two internet connections on one network.  I did some seaches and found this question usually with people trying to increase bandwith. to be honest I just want to be lazy and have it use which ever one is there at the time without reconfiguring the rounter and IP aaddress.  Situation is I have cable modem and a DSL modem and I sometimes swap services.  I have to linksys E1000 rourters and currently have them set up as 192.168.1.1(cable) and 192.168.0.1(DSL). I usually only have one serve turned on at a time.  If have not figured it out already I swap services to stay in promotional rates.  I would like to have them both hooked up at the same time and have the network use whichever internet is working at the time.  I also have a Linksys/Cisco SR224G wth 2 1gb ports on it if this help at all.  Do I need to buy a dual Lan Router or can I work with what I have.  Networking is not my strong point so you may have to ask me more questions to anwer my question.

Seems much easier to just set them up with the same LAN, and swap them when you switch services. $500 is about the lowest you can spend on a decent dual wan router. You can play with ddwrt on the cheap but it's gonna be command line Linux to do this.

Thanks both of you for the input seems like the best thing to do is just run one at a time.  It was not a big deal just trying to be lazy
