@ Darth Android - do think it is possible to set up two subnets as I've described above and implement load balancing and fail over?

I have a situation where we purchased an additional Internet connection bundled in with the phone service. I thought since I have a lot of traffic transferring large files (routine 10-50 GB transfers in and out of the subnet), I could isolate the sales department on their own ISP and route traffic with the existing pfSense firewall. It'd be cool if I could do what I mentioned above and use load balancing and fail over if either ISP goes down. Not sure if this is possible but I'm researching it now. Thanks again for your feedback.

Maybe I don't know the meaning of load balancing in this sense... I get the fail over method with the gateway groups. But I was asking about if you have two ISPs and you want each to deliver service to a different subnet (eg, 192.168.50.x/24 and 192.168.55.x/24) via one pfSense firewall/router (with their own interfaces) to maximize performance and speeds. I'm still new to networking, so it's likely I'm not thinking about these things correctly. My apologies in advance.

Thanks! Great answer... Assuming you want to simply join two ISPs without using the failover or load balancing, so you can use the bandwidth between two subnets, will this same method work? I suppose you wouldn't add the two two gateways to a group in this case?

Can you provide some topology of your network? Are there wireless devices/routers involved?

@EricF This is a good answer... Why not propose it as one?
