I have a 512 connection from Virgin, but would like a 1Mbit service. Sadly Virgin do not offer this at the moment. As I work from home, I have a second phone line. If I sign up for a free trial of a 1Mbit service on this second line (could be any provider - not really fussy), what kit will I need and what else will I need to do to enable both services to run concurrently?
My setup is modem > router/WAP > cat5 cable connections to 3 PCs and 11g wireless to two laptops.
The test of the new service could be to a single PC rather than networked.
I have asked this question before, but UI don't think this is possible, as you would have two external IP addresses. Trying to parallel them up is a bit of a technical no-go. Your best bet is to simply up the speed of your existing ADSL connection, or change supplier. NTL are now doing 1.5Mb/s for very little money.
Gary7 - It is possible, but I've discovered I would need to purchase another dsl modem router for the second line and an expensive bit of kit (£250 + VAT) into which both routers would plug and out of which would come the network cables - one to each PC as now. See this: click here
A bit rich for my blood, just to test a 1Mbit connection!
