Solved: Bonding Two DSL Connections into One
DSL is usually classified as a type of high-speed Internet connection. However, sometimes just one DSL line is not fast enough for what you need to get done. If you need to move a lot of data quickly, or you need your Internet connection to multitask, you may want to combine two DSL lines to increase bandwidth. Here is a simple three-step process to get you the lightning fast Internet connection you need.

Step 1: Connect to a DSL Line
You need to connect your laptop or desktop computer to the one of your DSL lines. You can connect either with an Ethernet cable or through a Wi-Fi connection from your router. This works best if only one DSL line is plugged into your router.
Step 2: Connect to Second DSL Line
Microsoft and Apple operating systems will allow you to connect to separate Internet connections, but by default you will only be able to use one connection at a time.
Most machines do not have multiple Wi-Fi cards or Ethernet ports. When connecting to the second DSL line you the easiest thing to do is connect through a different way than you connected the first line. For example, if you used an Ethernet connection for the first line, connect to the second line through the Wi-Fi network from the router in which the DSL line is plugged into, or vice-versa.
Make sure you are connecting to two different DSL lines. If you connect to the same line via Ethernet and Wi-Fi, you will not be able to get a super-fast connection by combining the two because they share the same upstream connection to the Internet.
If you want to use two Ethernet or two Wi-Fi connections to two separate DSL lines you will need extra hardware (such as USB adapters and dongles for Ethernet / Wi-Fi), and in the case of Apple OS computers, a third-party connections manager.
