Why don't you get full speed ADSL1? max8000/384...

I'm pretty sure the load balancers will just spread traffic over the
two routers, but can't split individual streams unless your ISP
supports it and that would be quite fiddly.

Try downloading a few files at the same time.

You may need to configure the router not to load balance some domaind
and/or ports
