You should be able to give the smokeping server different static
routes to different external ip adresses. Just remember to make
the gateway the ip address of the router on the corresponding WAN.

I think that the gateway also has to be on the same network
as the smokeping server.

Watch out for return addresses if you use public ip addresses at your
smokeping server.
