BT adsl routers and Draytek 2925n setup

Hi,

I have two adsl lines with bt modem/routers on them and would like to do a load balancing using dual wan (both ethernet) Draytek 2925n. My concern is that everything will go twice through NAT, and also, won't both wan ports get the same ip assigned by the BT routers,  which I suspect are setup the same incl thier dhcp scopes. What is the best way to get this setup?

Thanks!

Why are you concerned everything will go twice through NAT ?
You have full control over your WAN port, assigning your own IP is possible if both WAN ports get the same IP (probably not a problem anyway)

Thanks Jumperboy, looks like this is working. One question though, the wan link is showing as up even when DSL is down, which is to be expected on rhis setup,  but would the Draytek keep sending traffic to it, which will never get past the BT Lan interface, or is it smart enough to send it to the other wan?
