Two Internet Connections on One Computer

I've got two cable internet accounts. One is accessed through a wireless router, the other through a regular cat 5 router. How can I setup Windows XP to use them both, like having Firefox use one connection and IE use the other.

Hi elmoredaniel,

Sorry, Jay is right.

Windows will use the default gateway, of which it can only have one.

The only thing you could do, is segment it a bit more, use 1 connection for inbound traffic (which would mean any replying traffic would use the same connection)

Or you could get a router which handles multiple internet connections (best idea)

Hope that helps,
