Well by the title, yall most likely have guessed that I am a 56k jockey, its sad but true. A few months ago I had probs in regards to dial-up connection speed prob that I was having, and many thanxz to those who replied. As a result I am back to a 'normal' speed of 45.2
There seems to be this concept lodged in the back of my head called 'bonding modems', which would in effect double my connection speed, cuz of 2 modems acting as 1 . As a gamer I am greatly interested in doing this, but have no idea what to watch-out for, so I guess I am asking if anybody has done this with success or knows of a FAQ I can read. I say FAQ cuz I already have '?'s, let alone what is 'step one '
Thanxz for the eye-ball time
BTW, pairing up modesm (or even broadband connections) doesn't increase speed for just one stream. It only comes into play when you're working with more than one socket, in that case it channels them out one or the other based on a round robin algorithm. So to put it another way, if you're downloading a 10 mb file it won't download any faster but if you're downloading 2 10 mb files they will each be able to arrive at the connection speed of the modem, rather than half the speed.
its some protocal that has to be supported by your isp. it never caught on cause it wasnt practical to have two phone lines dedicated to an internet connection just for double speed. your isp also had to support it, since it required two of the isps modems it never caught on.
