What is the best setup for a backup Internet connection

Last Modified: 2015-08-26
Hi Guys,
I have two Internet connections, so far when one goes down I just manually switch to the second one, but I would like to have an automatic way to switch, so that I don't have to be there when it happens.

So the question is:
What is the best way/configuration to have the backup Internet connection come up when the primary goes down?

Thanks in advance.
