Hi crackers,

I have tried a similar setup with mpower and eastlink on the same
machine.  The best I was able to accomplish is to swap the default
gateway on the fly.

/sbin/ip route show

will give you your existing routing table

/sbin/ip route dele default via [ip of existing gateway] dev [adapter] 

This will remove the existing gateway

/sbin/ip route add default via [ip of new default gateway] dev [adapter]

This will add in the new default gateway.  The effect is immediate.
