No i cannot as you can only connect once, if you are only use one modem at one time then you are fine, the best option is make a small lan and use internet connection sharing..

As the other post suggests, it's unlikely you'd be able to run both modems at the same time.
The solution I went for was to get a D-Link DSL-504 ADSL router which allows me to connect 4 PCs at the same time. Router cost me about £100. Obviously each connecting PC needs a network card, but most new PCs have these as standard & you can get them for under a tenner anyway. Future plan is to plug a Wireless Access Point into the router & then I can connect my notebooks anywhere in the house or garden - if we get a summer next year I'll be able to work from my sun lounger, sipping a cocktail by the pool Smiley

Mabe if they have there own server as i am going to be running a ftp server, however you can run a ftp server and surf the internet all on one pc however the ftp server would run slow so it's better to have one cpu for a server and one cpu for normal surfing..

No internet cafe, just a wife and 2 kids - so there's often at least 3 of us wanting to do different things online at the same time......
