Hi ,

I am having two internet lines provided by two different ISPs which are to be connected to one serial port and one fast ethernet port on 1841 series router.

how can I merge them?

You can't and the one on the serial port probably is 56Kbps at most. Isn't the one connected to the serial port for backup in case the main line goes down?

sandeep, I cannot tell the last time I heard someone having an internet connection using a serial port. As long as you are running XP or higher you should be able to easily bridge the connections. Navigate to your Network Connections folder and select both connections. Right click the selection and left click "bridge network connections."

I really hope you mean USB and not serial, I cannot imagine how slow that would be.

Few people buy such an expensive router for home use.

Take a look at Cisco's website for configuration examples for that router. It's been awhile since I messed with routers. I manily touch switches.
There is a way you can use the serial as a backup internet which is what I would use it as.
