Bridging Dsl connection?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
In network connections you are able to right click and bridge the connection as long as two ethernet cables are live and connected. What does bridging the connections do? I have heard of shotgunning modems to get better speeds (dial-up) and is this similar or am I way off...

---for Pro SP2 if it makes a difference.

I am sure that will help performance and your broadband speed. But I think with DSL one line is pretty much running at the max DSL can. If it were 5 or whatever meg broadband I would say that would have a more noticable effect.

But the only real way to know is to try it. So if you have 2 ethernet connections on your computer try it and see. Wouldn't hurt anything.

But I think it is more along the lines for bridging networks and lans together to make one instead of many. I have read something that it does help, and other things saying it doesn't. So I would try it and see for your self.

Thanks for the info, i'll try it later today and see if it makes a difference...

I am able to download at a max of 170 kb/s but I can achieve this max across more than one computer running off of the same router and connection. hmmm..

+Rep for you!
