How weird. I came on to ask the self-same question - although in my case it was only going to be temporary - trying to set up new adsl router on one computer whilst client is still using old modem on his laptop.
So I assume I can't so that, then? Why not??


In order to use two internet connections at the same time you need something to load balance between them. Otherwise, your o/s will just choose one.


No - I meant two adsl modems on two separate computers - but it's academic now. Still be interested to know why I couldn't have done it, tho.

That should be fine unless they were using the same method of connectivity to your ISP.

Example - you can't run to DSL modems on the same phone line, you need a new phone line run.

Or you could run Cable on one PC and DSL on another
