Loadbalancing 2 gateways

By Ben_Kent_UK ·
I have a windows XP pc with 2 IP addresses and 2 gateways (one in each range). i.e

IP address 1:
Gateway 1:

IP address 2:
Gateway 2:

The above is great for redundancy, i.e. if one gateway goes down XP automatically uses the other.

My question is ... when both gateways are up, is it possible to loadbalance the 2 - either using native XP pro features or some third party app. i.e. one is a 1mb ADSL line and the other is a 2mb line, so I want a total of 3mb download from both gateways.

Hope this is clear.

Well written question and yes there is a way to do it.

System Key:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters]
Value Name: RandomAdapter
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)
