Another possible low-tech solution is to segment your network and set up 
each segment to use a different gateway and different pipe to the Internet. 
This doesn't provide dynamic balancing, but would give more effective 
bandwidth and reduce contention on the internal network. You'd have to also 
route between the segments which could reduce internal throughput to systems 
across the segment boundary.
