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