Multiple T1 lines Cisco 2800 same ISP

I currently have a cisco 2600 router but i am looking into purchasing another T1 line. Could the cisco 2800 combine the 2 lines to get full

3mbps speed up and down? what are my options. From what i understand about BGP, it will not really give me 3mbps but only load balancing. any ideas?

You don't need the 2800, the 2600 will do just fine. Look into Multilink PPP.

as long as you do not a lot of ACL's and have your ISP only send a defualt route via BGP, then 2600 would do fine.

However use CEF for load balancing if using two identical T1's to same ISP, less overhead than Multilink PPP

You'll have to work with your ISP to do MLPPP. Despite the fact it may have more overhead than CEF per-packet load-balancing, it is preferred to get 3Mb both directions. Without ISP support, per-packet only gets you 3Mb upstream, not down.
