How to take advantage of dual IPs?

  1. Hi there, first post here:D

    My cable ISP assigns two IPs to my account but so far I have only been able to use one of them. Is there any way I could put the second IP to use?

    I currently use a Linksys Wireless G router. I've been thinking about adding a switch/hub direct to the modem, and put the router behind the hub, but don't think this is a viable idea. If anyone out there have a brilliant or workable idea could you kindly share that with me please:)?

    Thanks for reading!

    Very difficult to do, as the default ROUTE will dominate the connections and send
    the traffic to that connection.

    Many want to do this assuming we could get 2x the bandwidth - - not so :(
