Short answer: No
Long answer: No, because it would require the ISP's cooperation in their end. If you had multiple computers, it would make it faster.

Bridging means connecting two independent Networks together.

It seems to me that on your mind is what is called Bonding.

Nah! you can not do it without ISP that is willing to support it.

The cost will more than getting a faster (more expensive) Internet connection.

Maybe we're getting confused with terminology here.
Are you trying to setup 2 internet connections so that you can use them both simultaneously? You might then be looking at doing load balancing. I have no idea how to do that, but I'm sure there are admins here who could guide you.

Here is the real test! Actual downloading off the Internet! As you can see from the picture, I was able to download two files and both at 151KB/sec!

The Math:
151KB + 151KB = 302KB/sec equal to: 2416kb/sec (kilobits) and is also equal to: 2.4mbit/sec (megabits)

Straight from the review, sounds pretty legit...

Yeah, he downloaded two independent Files at the same time using two independent Connections through the Router.

But that is not combining "Speed".

Combining Speed would mean Downloading One File through both WANs at half of the Time.

As mentioned by amdfanboy.

To Really Combine the two connections to one faster one would require the ISP's cooperation in their end.

Well as stated on the Site: "Configurations range from $2,950 (UpLink) to $37,000. Discounts are available.

Since you offer, get me the $37,000 version, it is your treat. :gift:

I will take care of ISP cooperation.:D

LOL :) If you need more bandwith, see if you have a cable ISP or can get SBC DSL.
