Once/if* you have fix/ed the above you then have the issue of routing.
Which ISP does a particular packet take ? As you are not running a
routing protocol how will it decide ?


All serious testing was done with only the WAN2 port connected, so the
routing issue doesn't arise.

However the Vigor routers have a load-balancing GUI so the route that
traffic takes can be managed from that. It can take account of the raw
line speed, and user preferences so for example traffic to your bank's
website always goes through a given route (to avoid the potential
problem of packets within the same session arriving at the bank from
different IP addresses).
