no need to purchase a second router...you can configure the same easily on the same router.


you just configure two default static route pointing to next hop.
you can load balance the traffic also.

or else configure two default static route...just increase the AD value.
like as-
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 <PRIMARY_ISP>
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 <SECONDARY_ISP> 254

The two Lines have to come from the same ISP

The ISP is the one that sets it up (not you). They have to setup the BGP between your Router and thier Router.

You need to add new module.
If you have ASN you could go for BGP otherwise check policy based routing.An example:

I'm not sure which modules you have already with your router.But you may add Fast Ethernet or Ethernet Switch module.The following link has details information about that:

Moreover, it'd be the best for you to contact to vendor.
