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.

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:
