There are many routers on the market that do exactly what you are describing. Try a quick Google search using "load balancing router" and check out what turns up.

Caution -- Many routers allow two WAN ports be connected like you want but in actuality they are only configured to use one or the other for traffic and switch to the other one when the link in use fails. Read the reviews and check online user manuals to verify the router you pick does load balancing as well as failure mode switching.

You might check out the D-Link DI-604 router for example. I have seen it go for around for $35 bucks on
