Here's your best bet.  There is no such thing as a "Simple step-by-step configuration" for this in windows.  It requires software, load balancing, etc etc.  You would have to provide a lot of information about your computer's setup and even then it takes a bit of trial and error.  Throw a little money at it and you probably save a lot of effort.

I've never used one of these, but I've heard they actually do work.

If you were running W2K3 server, you could use a simple hack to Network Load Balance those NICs, but it will not work with XP..  if you are interested in the process, you are welcome to visit my webpage on this if you wish...

Ck under Windows Server section....

I actually am using a Xincom dual wan router at my office, running DSL and Cable Modem.  It is a decent product, but I was a little disappointed with the results.  (Although the main reason I purchased it was for redundancy, and this works quite well..)

XP is not really built to handle a dual NIC internet connection using load balancing.  The server version (W2K3) is the only way I know of to go here...  Unless you are able to afford a Dual Wan router....

have you try bridging the connections?  

Goto Network COnnection
Highlight both NICs
Right click on one of them
Select Bridge Connections

This is a total shot in the dark.  I've bridged my wireless connection with my neighbors (shhh) wireless connection and got some good reseults.  SHould work for DSL.

Let me know.
