    Is it possible to take my HPNA 2.0 and my wireless Pre-N connection and somehow combine their bandwidths? I'd like them to work together to connect more quickly to my router and the modded Xbox (which is directly connected to the router with ethernet). The two connections can currently connect independently, but I want them to join forces! And please don't tell me it isn't worth it to try. I just want to learn. Thanks!

    you can achieve Load Balancing by using a Dual WAN Router. Hawking Tech., and others make few models including Wireless. Prices start at $50.Example: Dual WAN Routers.
    This type of Cable/DSL Routers have two WAN connections for two Broadband Modems and they would mange the Internet traffic to the LAN to be used in the most efficient way.

    Hey, thanks for giving it a shot, but like I said, this is not for the Internet. This is solely for my computer's connection to the router and Xbox. Thanks though.
