Dial up and DSL on same computer?


Is it possible to have an active Dial up connection and an active DSL connection on the same computer?

Because i was trying to setup DSL and a wireless router on a computer at work that has a dial up connection and must have an internet connection on monday and wanted to disable the dial up to be sure it wasnt affecting the DSL but it turned out that the darn DSL service wasnt turned on yet. LOL. But i was still curious.

Since the dailup would be on a phone cord port and the DSL most likely on a faster port like firewire, they should act as separate apps. I'm not sure just how 2 internet connections would behave, if there's enough RAM I guess it could work, if a bit of an odd thing to do...

I really think that it would be more of a hassle than anything. It's like me keeping my comp downstairs and using the wireless and ethernet connection at the same time. Quite pointless really.

I want to keep dial up for the email service: nice virus/worm/nasty blocker with them.
