Multiple Dial-up connections

There's how I make two dial-up connections work at the same time on XP? I have two 56k modems with different ISPs, but when I dial the second connection, the first stops the activity.
There's how I make both work together? I'd like to use one connection for downloads and the other for browsing.

You can achieve this if you have a few things. The first major requirement is that both dial-up connections are with the same ISP and that said ISP supports what is commonly called multi-linking, bonding or "shot-gunning" as coined by Diamond Multimedia in the early days.

Unfortunately, if you don't have these things your out of luck. Also, keep in mind that if you do successfully meet all the requirements your really only load-balancing between the two connections.

At a LAN once we joined together around 4 modems :). It would of been expensive... but the speed was great :D
