This might be a silly question...
We are looking for a Dual WAN Router for fail-over reasons, but since we pay for both connections anyway, we might as well take advantage of them. What confuses me, is that they all write, that you can use the router in EITHER fail-over or Load Balancing mode. What does that mean if I run it in Load Balancing mode and one connection goes down?

Since we are at it, any device you can recommend (that supports vpn too)?

Have a look at the Draytek 2900 series, like this one that should do what you want.

Thanks. And what about the load balancing / failover? –  Remy Nov 16 '12 at 9:53

Set it up for load-balancing and if one fails then all traffic (unless otherwise cofigured) should go out via the still live connection –  deveneyi Nov 16 '12 at 11:42
