    Dual modems, dialup at twice the speed

    I know a guy who an ISP owner, he told me that i could install two modems in my PC. He said I need two phone lines and I can configure Win XP to dial both connections at the same time and double my speed.

    Anyone know of this ? it would be awesome to have 10kbs download, maybe it would speed up my gaming

    If I remember its called shotgunning or piggybacking...not quite sure but your isp has to support this. you could do this back in the win95 days to boost your 9600baud to 22k.

    Well thats out the window, I called the phone company and its $26 for another line that would mean over $50 for a sucky 10kbs download/100k connection

    I need to sell the house and move.
