Right then, tomorrow, my BT Broadband (ADSL) connection gets activated, but I've got this cable connection for the rest of the month...

It'd be a shame to see one of them go to waste, is there some simple-ish way I can merge them together? I'm thinking I'll probably have to use some Linux distro, that's no problem, as long as it's not too much of a pain in the arse to set up :)

Hardware I have/will have is...

- Motorola SurfBoard SB5101E (Cable modem)
- BT Home Hub (ADSL modem/router)
- Linksys WRT54G (Router)


Cheers

A linux distro should be able to load balance them together just like one of those expensive routers can. No idea which distro though.

Why not? Why have a connection going to waste for a month?

it would be so cool if there was a device that had 5+ rj45 ports on one side and 1 rj45 port on the other side where you would plug all 5 port in to the router and plug your computer or other network device into the other port and get a massive network and internet speed increase,
