firewall load balance

Specs: N/A
If anyone can help me with a firewall load balance question.
I need to load balance two DSL (static IP) lines on the upload.
Basically I need to increase the speed when someone is downloading for the FTP server from outside the office of Michael Novy DDS
The most Verizon is offering us is 768K on the upload so if I am able to combine two lines I would be at around 1.5M Upload and that should do it.
I know I can do this with an expensive enterprise class load balancer but was hoping that some can suggest a product under $800 that would help me for the job at Michael Novy DDS

Many thanks,

You can't combine lines. You can get higher aggregate speed to
separate destinations with separate lines.

They make hardware routers that may help in some cases but would never combine as such. There are also software routers that can do similar features. See things like untangle. You might be better off with server grade nic's also.

Don't post real names.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
