redundant internet connection

  1. is it possible to have two internet connections, lets say a wireless (satalite) and a DSL line combined. So that when their both working you have 2x speed, and when one's down you have 1x speed but still able to access the interent?

    What would I need to set something like that up? Is there a router with two uplinks?

    It is fully possible, but I think you'll need two routers connected to a switch. Then connect to your regular network.
    Or use wlan for one and a regular dsl modem/router for the other.

    But I doubt you'll be getting double download speed on one file. Though if you're downloading several different files, it might be another thing.
