Actually, it's *not* the exact same question. That question was dealing with specifying different connections for different sites/purposes, not doubling up the bandwidth.

I've heard of that technique being used before, called "shotgunning" (it applied to dial-up connections, not sure if there's a broadband equivalent). I think it required an extra piece of hardware -- some kind of splitter -- that managed the two links and automatically distributed the load. Even then, you couldn't just use two arbitrary connections; I think they had to be with the same ISP, or something along those lines.

The thread that xantr3x linked to will give some info, but basically you're not really going to be able to add up the bandwidth (especially if you're just looking to download stuff). If you wanted to run servers on one connection and download using the other, check that thread.

Otherwise, just use uTorrent and schedule the porn to download while you're at school or sleeping. ;)

I think a Dual WAN router is what you are looking for.

I think a Dual WAN router is what you are looking for.

A dual WAN router would assume that both WAN resources are local and not different mediums unless you designed one yourself (probably the most reasonable) One being a wired locally, the other is a wireless location, this would require a wireless client bridge to form on the 'router' that manages the load balancing. With careful configuration you might be able to properly get dd-wrt to do this, as I have used full wan access via a wireless client bridge using this firmware on a Linksys wrt54gv4. Assuming you go with this option you will want to define a load balance method (somehow with this firmware im not fully sure) but you can define the 'internet' port as one WAN interface as well as the W1 as your secondary.

P.S. Remember to configure the wifi for wireless client bridge to the secondary 'wireless' network if this is the method you wish to do because that will need to be in place and functioning before any sort of load balancing will take place.

I have to know: is this your wired connection and your neighbors open WiFi connection?
