Only multilink from your ISP will do.
The prob is that if you use 2 different ISPs you will never get by the prob with name servers and proxy servers pointin to different IPs, at the same time the collisions will be sky high. You may try to use a proxy S/W that will allow you to transparently connect and share but not any embeded Win2K s/w.
Hope helps

Well there are some programs that are used as proxy servers that may allow you to create more than one connection via different modems. The catch is to use 2 accounts from the same ISP, otherwisw the s/w will not be able to create all the needed references to DNS and ISP's proxies. The DNS server is responcible for the translation of URL to an IP address, and eventually to provide your PC with the needed information to establish the connection.  If your ISP provides you the "multilink" service, you are able to login with the same username and password more than once, the system can be set up to automaticaly use both connections at the same time. This is the technology behind ISDN 128KB connection (part of it).
Hope I made clear that either you have to look for a proxy server capable to use more than one Internet connections ans act as a proxy & router (maybe visiting Linux groups could give you a hint:) or you have to relay on your ISP to do this for you.

I think there is one for Linux, I am not sure if there is any for Windows. I for the time I use Windows 2000 with internal rooting, there is no problem as soon as you route via Ethernet, you will have to deside for each subnet what interface to use, you also have to install a DNS service on the router so that the name services to be available for all the subnets. Unfortunately RAS (remote access services) thet enables windows to use dial on demand, do not support multiple connections to different ISPs or even with different username and password (e.g. there is no possibility as far as I know to connect even to the same ISP not supporting multilink with 2 different modems). The best way is to re-route your question to a Linux usergroup. They usualy respont promptly.
Hope it helps
