I have an Asus P5E3 premium-Wifi apN... bla bla Motherboard... I was wondering, I have my own adsl connection, BUT! my father has a wireless in the house, which I can get from my room... Both are 5Mbps(Uhhh.... Yeah, I know... I wish i'd lived in Japan!), So the question is, can I combine the 2 connections for a supercalifragelistic 10Mbps :/ connection??? And I'm using win7, if that's changes the odds... Thanks for the help!

Is the wireless running off the ADSL as well? If it is, you won't benefit much (I have an wired connection and a wireless connection going to my desktop, to be sure I'll always have a connection).

And you won't get a 10Mbps connection, but two 5Mbps connections.

It wouldn't be done on your computer, but on special network hardware designed to accept multiple connections.

the wireless is adsl too, but a different username, and not connected to me in any way...

Okay, you need a router with dual WAN ports and support for load balancing. (Get a Wireless to Ethernet bridge if you can't access a wire to the source of the wireless connection)

I guess you can, I don't have much experience with two internet connections though. It works for having two connections to my switch on my network and that speeds up the network speeds. I don't see why it won't work with two different Internet connections.
