What if you could use two modems to dial up your ISP simultaneously and split the packets over both connections effectively doubling your connection speed? Would you do it? What if your operating system knew you were requesting a lot of information or were placing a heavy load on your connection and did the dialing automatically? Sound cool? SOmething you’d use?
Multilink allows you to synchronize two modems and connect to an ISP. Mulitlink also uses the BAP (Bandwith Allocation Protocol) to allow your system to log onto the second connection during periods of high or repeated use so you don’t tie up your phone line.
There are some requirements, however. 1) Windows XP 2) Two modems 3) Two seperate phone lines 4) an ISP that supports Multilink
