Is is possible to use two broadband connections as one through Windows Server 2003

I have two broadband connections into my house as one of them was free and i kept the other for a backup in case it went down.  I also have a windows server 2003 running and have a copy of ISA server 2000 that is not used.

I was wondering if it was possible to set up the server as some sort of proxy and have the server use the two connecitons to give me super fast broadband!  I thought maybe this is possible through W2K3 Server Routing & Remote Access?

    to be honest i can't see how two broadband connections can be combined, but i should imagine that you can set up the network to assign different broadbands for each system this would allow faster access all round. just not double your speed

    Hi there,

    You can accomplish this but you require to have an ISP that supports what is called channel Bonding and the equipment to do so on your end and on the ISP's end. You will find however that this is usually only provided by smaller ISP's. Other than that there would be no way to use both lines to split the traffic down.

    Here are some good sites for information on this.
