    No.

    But you can buy routers which allow you to use dual ADSL connections under load balancing. You need two ADSL modems and accounts and then you can double your bandwidth.

    well.. a long time ago, they came out with a modem that allows you to connect to 2 ISP;s at the same time but then you need 2 phone lines.. useless becoz dsl/cable are so much cheaper now..

    setting up 2 phone lines cost about the same as dsl/cable and you would only be getting 128kb.. hardly worth it.

    Some ISP's allow multi-linking, which is connecting to the same account with two modems for the purposes of greater bandwidth. If you've got two phone lines to try this, then ask your ISP if it's possible. There's also some hard to find modems out there which actually support two simultaneous connections as well. I haven't seen one in years though.

    I believe "shotgunning" is the technical term.
    And yes, your ISP and your modems have to be compatible. I've heard that some of the modems by Diamond (aren't they under a different name now?) are quite good at this.

    But no, not 2 modems on seperate PC's ___ you'll want 2 modems on 1 PC sharing the connection with the second PC.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.
