Hi,Is it possible to connect with two separate Dataone 256K connections (two phone lines, two routers and two accounts, two LAN ports on the computer) and join them to make a fat pipe of 512K connection on windows platform??

are u a plumber joining two pipes?
its not possible...
For a newbie u r quite cocky arent ya? If u know the answer then spit it out...if u dont then STFU. And for ur info it is quite possible. The only thing is that i am quite unsure of the process as its a little complicated...so i wont pass a smart comment on this for now.
i think i can give some help.one day when i was testing broadband speed in a website i wanted to test a dialup connection speed.first i thought to disconnect broadband and connect phone line to pc and test its speed.accidently i forgot the disconnecting the broadband part and connected another phone line into the dialup modem jack.then i connected thro my dialup account.then the painful thing happened.i couldnt even browse anything !!!This is due to the thing that one computer cannot have two WAN IPs. :huh:
Do a search on this forum for wingate.I've even fused 3 connections...speeds of 120kBps.tho it only works for http downloads(where u can split the files)..newsgroups.doesnt work well wid torrents as wingate has a problem handling so many connections.
I believe this can be done. I have tried using dial-up and broadband at once. Even though I haven't noticed transfer on both connections simulataneously, which may be because the two IPs assigned to me were on different subnets, I feel this is possible.I feel so because the route which is the shortest will be picked always. If the route to the destination of one connection is shorter than the route through the other connection, the former will be chosen for all connections. So, in your case, as you are trying to get two connections from the same ISP and if the IPs which the DHCP assigns to you are in the same subnet, you can access the internet through both the connections simultaneously. For example, 1st connection gets an IP 188.8.131.52 and the 2nd gets a connection gets an IP 184.108.40.206; they are most probably in the same subnet. So the routes through both the IPs to the destination IP, for example, microsoft.com, would be exactly the same.Of course, this is only theoretical. If someone tries this practically, please post your experiences here.However, I don't think making a new "fat pipe" is possible, because we are talking about 2 connections, which means 2 IPs. 2 routes cannot be made one.It is illegal for one person to be connected on the internet using two IPs in many countries. Maybe you will go scott free in India.Another thing is, why would you want to pay 2 x (price of 256Kbps) when you can get a single 512kbps for a lesser price than getting two of 256Kbps? I really don't understand why.Edit: Seems like muttster's got a nice little program there called Wingate.
It is possible. I posted screenshots of torrent downloads in such a config. Though you can not utilize full bandwidth for a single downlowd, if yo uare using download manager / torrent or anything that opens multiple httlp connection for a single download you canget combined bandwidth of two connections.
If u are trying to combine two DSL connections then a dual WAN router may be the solution for u.But again u would get benefit on only those applications which open multiple connections to same/different servers on the net.
well the catch here is that using two connections is not a very wise thing to do.........for knowledge it is good but you would not benfit from doing it the reason being.........A download is broken into several simultaneous smaller permanet connections thru one connection so it is some thing like Connect to a site and your browser makes 10 connectons wioth the server the only thing that would happen is the connections would get divide as 5+5 or X+Y not helping you much .......I have used this this is called connection teaming......I used the software "Midpoint" to do it it is the only free one avlbl to do it.......I combined 512 airtel and 256 bsnl.......To proove my point try this test once your using both the connections........use an online bandwidth meter and your results will not give you X+Y but will give you sometimes X and Some times Y.This is bcos again for the bandwidth test the file being transfered is done only using one of the connection and not both ......the best solution is the dual WAN router........which i havnt seen any in INDIA
First of all, I couldn't find the software "Midpoint" as the midcore.com seems to have been closed down.Secondly, I know that IPTable can be setup on Linux but how to do it on XP?? Third, considering the unavailability of dual WAN router, what can be done now, please give a walkthrough if possible.
What is the purpose of combining two connections?Since windows does not ahve "generic" IPTables like connectivity, probably I can find out some other way to solve your problem (e.g. someway to download torrents with both connections or some way to use one connection for voip or other for surfing......)
