    Umm no, this device can not bind the two connections together like that (aggregation). The main selling point of the device is its failover support and external facing load balancing.
    That is that from the LAN side of the network the device decides which connection is the best to route the data over (based on percentage values you set), the possible draw back is that you have for example, a email account which is only accesable via provider A, but the device routes the connection to provider B.

    I believe the device handles all of that automatically, and then assigns a unqiue IP address to each computer you plug into it.... some of them have special configuration interfaces you can access to set everything up. And you can use any TCP/IP services over it, including FTP

    Hmm .. It sounds very interesting. I must have FTP though because I need to acecss my main computer at work to get documents etc as well as pc anywhere. So, I need a main IP. I wonder how that would work with two broadband connections. I sent an e-mail to them .. I guess I'll find out soon

    Yes this is called mutiplexing, and can even be done with two dial-up modems. I'm not sure of all the technical details though....

    Tieing two net connections for one big one?

    That product claims you can take two internet connections (I have DSL and cable right now) and tie them together to get one mega line.

    Does anyone have any experience on this? What would your IP be? Since both of my broadband connections give me two different IP's, would I have one central IP?

    I know someone will probably say, "I don't know, ask them!" Well, I did but wanted to see what you guys thought as well.
