If the internet and the incoming phone call are on the same line then you can't have both going at the same time. Its either the incoming call or the outgoing Internet connection on a dial-up setup.

In any case, Windows will use the fastest connection it can lay its hands on so if the machine is already on a broadband connection, you can start as many dial-up connections as you like, Windows just won't use any of them for internet access.
