Hi

I have two internet connections in my computer running under Windows XP Pro i.e. One connection from USB the other is from DSL. I want to share these connections over the workgroup lan without worrying about what connection is active.
Currently I have tor run Network Wizard on the machine with Internet connection to switch between the two. I could not find any option in XP to select more than one connection at a time.

If you already have a DSL modem with RJ45 output you could use one of the 2910 models and plug a cat5 cable from the DSL modem to WAN1 on the 2910. If you want the DSL modem built into the router one of the 2820 models would be better.

The 2820 and 2910 models both utilize the USB port only as a WAN2 feed...
Here's a list of the 3G, 3.5G and 4G devices they support on WAN2:
