    I have both ADSL and Cable in my house. I also have two network cards in my main computer. I was wondering if it would be possible to bridge the 2 connections and there for have better bandwidth?? will this work?? if not is there any other way I can make use of both my connections to achieve faster download/upload speeds??

    Thx in advance!!!

    Cheers

    Goto your connection properties and select "multi-linking", I used this to combine two ISDN channels.

    Would add the Bandwidths together!

    2x 512kbps connections = 1mbit

    Not that im aware off, aslong as you can get them both to link together you should be fine, pings might be slighly higher because of parting and joining the data.
