We have currently at work two ISP boxes(routers), i want to setup a firewall to protect an intranet on a local host. The problem is that not every one is using the same router.

Here is my question: how can i do to make all traffic be sent to one location (firewall-loadbalancer) then the loadbalancer switchs automatically between the two routers .

EDIT: The network is a small office network, there's 6 hosts and the intranet runs an one of them. The host must be reachable from outside but a firewall rule must filters the incoming connections. The rest of the network must send traffic to one locations, which forwards it automatically to the two routers.

EDIT2: Here is the current diagram : http://goo.gl/RBRvS

Solution: I found that i have either to use a bond interface on the firewall as pberlijn sayed, or routing manually to each router like here linux advanced routing

this question was merged with Loadbalancing between two isp uplinks because it is an exact duplicate of that question.
