    Hi, was wondering if it's possible to connect to the Internet using
    both my regular dial up modem and my Sprint phone (VM4500) ?

    I have successfully connected both at the same time but only one
    works at a time. Is there a software to join both connections
    at the same time ?

    Thanks!

    In short, no. At least, I'm 95% sure it's no. The two connections=20
    have different IP schemes, different routing, etc. Depending upon=20
    what operating system you use, it's possible to use a technology=20
    called (I think) shotgun to put two modem connections together for=20
    increased bandwidth. However, you'd have to use the same ISP for=20
    each connection, and the ISP has to support that kind of connection.

    And we don't.

    I have Win XP and does have a MultiLink option available but
    I have been messing with oit with no luck, maybe there is a 'special'
    way to do it ?

    I believe the previous answer should have convinced you its not possible
    with SprintPCS as one of your connections.

    Um, no.
    You need to have the two end points of the other side meet at the same RAS
    server/connections point in order for MLPPP to work.

    ISP's *do not* have bridge tunnels between them over the internet. They
    route. They don't bridge.

    IOW, you have to dial into the same RAS server ( or server cluster ) using
    the same ISP in order for this to work.
    If you have two Phone via SprintPCS, you can hope that they have MLPPP
    enabled on their side and try *that* out.
    Other than that, nope, not gonna work. ;-)
