Default Linux router with CentOS

Hello everybody.

I'm wondering here if is it possible to setup a CentOS machine as a router for two Internet connections in a LAN. This _router_ would work as the gateway for the workstations using DHCPD. The purpose of this is to optimize the broadband "joining" both connections, and given the case, do not lose the Internet access.


¿is this possible? ¿too much complicated?

Searching the Net i found something simliar: http://linux-ip.net/html/adv-multi-internet.html but, I would like to read a second opinion.


Thank you very much. Cheers.

Use pfSense (www.pfsense.org) for that.It's based on FreeBSD, but you don't really need care about the OS - it comes with a web-gui that can configure everything (fail-over, WAN-loadbalancing/failover).
Unless you want to spend a lot of time and never get it right 100%...
