    Wink Test your Knowledge.

    Suppose u have two dial up connections @115 kbps (one from Airtel, other from Reliance).

    then, Is there any possibility of increasing the overall bandwidth by dialing both connections at once?

    if we dial both the connections simultaneously - can we get 115 * 2 = 230 kbps?

    What is the procedure under Windows and what is the procedure inder Linux?

    I think it would take just one connection...

    suppose i have a 1 Mbps DSL connection. what if i take it to a switch, make 2 ethernet outs, connect them to 2 LAN cards on my machine??? would i get 2 Mbps ??

    @nethack, your PC can work with only one LAN connection at a time. Hence even if you have two connections, they will not provide any extra bandwidth.

    004.The higher speed will take over and if it fails the other connection.
    005.If both are from same ISP both will fail at the same time probably !
    006.Single modem for 2 connections from same ISP not possible.
    007. VPI/VCI 0_35 only one entry may be allowed.
    008.( I tried could not do it ) or

    Two modem can work simulteniously by using modem teamming. But this technique is only for the dial up networking facility means I have no idea about the ADSL Modem or you can say that Digital lines generally does not support Modem doubleing. Here is one article What is modem doubling? - a definition from Whatis.com - see also: modem bonding, modem teaming.

    ur line# 004 doesn't make any sense to my question. There is no point of higher speed when both the cables are coming from the the same single line.

    You are right. Correct. You have only one BB connection.
    all comments for previous user @nethack.
    Your query already replied by @ just4kix.
    ...........Hence even if you have two connections, they will not provide any extra bandwidth.
    Para two :

    Please explain your connection/idea.
    Something like this ??
    Single BB connection (1Mbps speed )==.......>> modem/router Rj45 cable to
    switch Input point
    LAN1 and LAN2 rj45 cables (>>>..to SINGLE computer 2 ether net cards = speed 2 Mbps. maximum.
