Hello Saed,

to be able to use the two ADSL for load balancing you need a dedicated address block for the lan interface and for the site and the two ADSL have to come from the same provider.

if NAT is involved you can achieve redundancy but not real load balancing.

For the device a C2811 can be a good choice.

Hope to help

The smaller router you can use is a 1841 with two HWIC-1ADSL.

I differ from Giuseppe's reply as with NAT the results are usually quite good.
