Using two connections at once...

I have a problem here.

I have two connections. One is much faster, college internet, which is unfortunately restricted.

The other is slower interent I get through a wireless modem - which can however access things the college can't block. It currently seems to have trouble with anything involving scripts, for some bizarre reason, I guess it's upstream is very slow even if its' down stream isn't too bad.

Is there any way I can use both "at once"? It's annoying having to change connections when I stop playing an online game and want to check my emails. Would putting them through a double adaptor achieve this? How would it work?
