Can I combine two internet connections to get a faster connection?


Hi,
I am using Red Hat Linux enterpriser 4 using two physical LAN cards.There are two different ISP internet lines coming into a single gateway computer. Is it possible that if in our one network we are using 2 MB bandwidth and from another network we are getting 2 MB bandwidth.(Two different Networks) and combine it into 4 MB.
In bonding it combine the bandwidth or it do loadbalancing ?

The question is can we accumulate or add these two bandwidth in Linux machine and it sent total bandwidth 4 to the end users ?

Lan Card A
IP Address: 192.168.1.250 2MB Bandwidth
l
l
l
Gateway Computer Total Bandwidth 4MB
l

l
Lan Card B
IP Address: 176.16.10.10 2MB Bandwidth

Thanks in advance.

thanks for the link whell but it is not my answer.I only want to use Red Hat Linux box for that purpose.

2-My goal is if one link is down from ISP then the other link should provide the bandwidth to the user.So how may I do it ?
