That can be very complicated .... and totally depends on what you want to do, how many computers (or networks) you want to have behind the connections, what kind of connections you are getting, etc.

Please provide the kind of connections and what kind of network you want to run behind it.

The easiest (and cheapest) way to do this is to put a computer with 3 network cards as the gateway ... One internal, one going to each external connection ... then setup rules in an IPTABLES script to try and load balance the connections based on where you use bandwidth.

It is not easy to do this ... another way is split computers inside to 2 seperate networks (like 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x) and route all computers for one network out one connection ... all the others out the other connection.

It is usually much easier to just increase the bandwidth of your current provider if they can do it for you than to try and have 2 different providers.
