We bought seven units of RV042 to our corporate network. Now, we have six branch offices to connect VPN tunnels to use VoIP and Terminal Server (MS). At the head office, we have two connections of 1 Mbps each and we would like to use the load balance configuration. Question: WE REALLY MUST NEED TO SET THE ROUTER TO SMART BACKUP RATHER THAN LOAD BALANCING, BECAUSE IT MIGHT CAUSE VOIP PACKETS TO GET LOST?

That is correct Marcelo. The idea is when the packets get load balanced, they will leave on separate WAN ip addresses and the receiving end will not know that they are part of an already established session. Most of the time, load balance is only good for file transfer and http traffic.
