View Full Version : Stupid Dsl question

i kno this is kindofa gay question..but if you connect 2 dsl modems will your dsl speed increase?...okok stop laughing. i've got one that connects via usb and one via NIC. i was hoping it'll double ma speed :).

yes and no
Its called binding. It will double your speed provided you set i up wiht 1 ISP that supports whatever protocol it needs.
You can do it without the ISP (at least you can on linux) but all you will be doing is doubling your upload speed.
I kinda looked into it for a while, because I wanted to host my own web page. But when your web design professor transfers to another college, without deleting your *temporary accounts* that have unlimited space, on a T1. You tend to not care about hosting your own page. I really hope they dont notice that subdirectory for a while.

Oh and one other thing, the binding was origionally for modems, but I dont see why it wouldn't work for DSL too.
Also there is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people :)
ive heard about setting it up so that one modem will upload and one will download. this should speed it up a little, but i dont know if you will really notice any difference. since i dont have dsl i havent really looked into the details of it.

I had a lot of trouble finding info on it. Just do searches for "Modem binding" or "dual modems" whatever woks for the modems should work for DSL

Try searching for modem BONDING. You'll find a lot more about ti that way. :) As for using dsl, I wouldn't think windows would really care what you were connecting with, although I'm stuck in the mid '90's with this damn 56k! One thing to consider, you'll still need 2 phone lines, and being dsl, I'd assume 2 (what do you call them....?) modems (?). One for each line as you won't have an input without it. You wouldn't be able to bond 2 signals on the same line, the required frequencies would already be in use.
Then, of course, you'd have to be using an ISP that allows simultaneous log-ins... You actually have to be logged in twice, then win98 does it's magic sending alternate info down each line... At least that's the way it works with regular modems, I would guess dsl would be no different.
Also try searching for hypermodems if modem bonding doesn't return what you want.
