dual isp links

we have two internet connections, a dsl and a 64k leased line connection from 2 different isp's.the 64k is connected thru a wic-2t module and i plan to connect the dsl thru the extra ethernet slot on my 2610 router. how do i configure bgp such that it will load balance the connection between these two?

i got hold of a paper (sample configuration for load sharing with BGP-cisco) regarding this setup but it requires that i have access on both access servers of the isp's which is quite impossible because they're not gonna give that access. it also discussed of using two serial interfaces which is not applicable to my setup since my connection uses an ethernet and serial interface.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: dual isp links

I would rather use BGP to maintain the connections / routing and then use CEF to control the load balacing either per-packet / per -session. In your case the per session will probably work the best.

Hope this helps.
