Dual WAN with WRV54G

    I have a WRV54G connected to a cable modem, and a WRT54GL connected to a DSL connection.

    I have a couple of computers that have 2 LAN cards (Dell Poweredge 2800 is the main one).

    Currently we keep the WRT54GL as a 'backup' - we find it's WiFi is quite a bit stronger than the WRV54G - so our PDA's and notebooks that are mobile access the internet from this router, and if our cable internet goes down we plug the DSL connection into the WRV54G to keep our server accessible.

    Obviously we don't really know networking - but since there are 2 WAN ports I am wondering if we can't get the 'redundancy' into our server automatically? Or at least without having to do physical changes (ie: just change some DNS pointers remotely would help on the weekends/evenings).

    We have been thinking about going for the dual WAN Linksys, but our budget is tight so it would be nice to just make better use out of our backup.

    Any advice?
