probably not...but maybe....you would have to pay for 2 connections...you would need to purchase 2 static ips and assign one to each of the cards....but the big question is...why?

I'm not exactly sure what you are meaning, but most ISP's offer ISDN packages..which would essentially be 2 speed packages. You would have to pay your ISP for both the accounts, and make sure you have the right modems and configuration, but it would help you gain a higher speed internet. Then just use your network to share the connection on both PC's.

Actually i live in India, now here the broadband is like narrow band i should say ,the maximum speed my ISP provides me is 256kbps & here they offer diffrent packages for speed .So,now wat i wanted to know is that if i purchase two packs of 256kbps speeds & use them simultaneously i could get speed of 512kbps.

And my ISP doesnt provide me with static ip's ,some local ip is provided & my external ip keeps on changing whenever i login.

no router or modem is provided,some cat 5cable comes & is inserted in my lan card.

well...the issue there is that with two nic cards you have to have 2 ip addresses...so basically instead of getting one 512 connection you would just get 2 256 connections...there would not really be a way to use them simultaneously....even with the two nic cards and static ip's you would only be able to use the cards seperately not together...such as...one for upload and one for down.

well....no...you would have one nic running at 256 and the other running at 256...but to my knowledge there isn't a way to differintiate (sp?) between which nic is going upstream and which isn't...i think the offer of 2 different speed packages is kind of supposed to be for 2 different machines.
