    RV016 supports up to either 5 or 7 WAN connections.

    Basically...yes. You have to log in and configure the router to work with your WAN connections..setup the information that your ISP requires for each link...such as PPPoE credentials.

    Another brand that has been receiving good reviews is Peplink.

    This takes up to 7x WAN connections.
    Tim Higgins reviews the 3 WAN port Peplink model.

    I've setup dual WAN on the Linksys RV0 series..it works OK. Have never setup more than 2x WANs.

    Another approach you can take...many of the *nix distros support multi-WAN, such as PFSense.
