Hi guys ,

I am looking for a dual wan router to do the following.

I have 2 wans,
1 Vdsl2 3.5km repeated via ubiquiti 40mb higher latency bulk data link 1 Tb data . Zyxel 870 bridgeable vdsl modem
2 Adsl2 12mb. Low latency 100gig data. Draytek vigor 120 Bridgeable.

I would like to do policy based routing to divert low latency traffic (2xvoip lines, Gaming, Teamspeak) via Wan 2
Bulk data transfers that are not affected by latency/jitter (p2p, dropbox, ftp, netflix/youtube and other streaming services) via wan 1

It would be good if I could bridge both wans to the router to get away from double nat. And that the router would divert the application specifc traffic to the most suitable wan.

With this setup is it possible to have different applicaitons running from one compter/ip to both Wans depending on the services used. 
I would also like qos, traffic monitoring ability 

If this is possible, what level of difficulty is it, I have no experience with cisco gear. Is it possible to purchase the hardware and hire someone to write the routing tables. 

I have had a look at some dual wan routers on google but most are for bonding 2 similar connections for redundancy or loadsharing.

Get a Mikrotik RB2011UAS. It will do all of the above and much more..

There are lots of examples on the net on what you want to do and you can set it up via command line or GUI

It can terminate the bridged ADSL/VDSL connections quite easily.

Can be done in PFsense but would be very hard to do with IPv6. You just create your own NAT rules based on part, destination etc. and attach the different WANs to your NAT rules

+1 on the Mikrotik but any setup is going to require quite a bit of knowledge of networking to make it work.

Thanks for the suggestions, the Mikrotik looks awesome, As I wont have time to learn the setup of this due to time/work project till winter next year.
What could I expect to pay to have the router configured to preform as above.
