Customer Question

I want to purchase a dual WAN, load balancing router for my office. I need one that is easy to configure for someone who has a VERY basic understanding of the technology. I want it to accommodate two internet providers, and manage and balance the network load between the two isp's for my 7 computer workstations (Windows PC's) in my office, and also VOIP phones. I want the router to have "failover" capability, so if one internet provider goes down, the router will automatically route all traffic over the other provider. One thing that might be an issue (not sure) is that one of the internet providers is Cable TV, and static ip service is not available.

You can go for a Draytek model - they will support both of your internet providers, and static IP isn't necessary:
