hey guys, I need a little bit help here. My problem is I'm trying to connect 2 modems (both pci modems) with 2 phone lines and 2 ISPs (one pay service another is net zero) , but my comp will not regconize my second connection. It will drop my connection all the time after the modem tried to reash to ISP.
The modems work fine with stand alone, I can connect with one or another without any problem. I tried to switch between modems and ISPs still doesnt help!!!!
Anyone have any ideas about connecting 2 modems in the same time, PLEASE HELP!!!!!

You can do 2 MODEMS, 2 lines, and one ISP if the ISP supports multi-link connections. I have read that you cannot do it with two ISPs. Larry

Sorry, I don't think it can be done any other way and I don't know whether or not Earthlink supports multi-link. I think they did at one time, but I can find nothing on their web site that says so. I did, however, see that they charge $1/hour/additional connection if you have more than one connection open. You might want to look at their web site again or call or E-Mail them. Larry
