No, sorry, it ain't gonna work (among other things, you would have two network devices with the same ip and, anyway, a 56 K modem uses the full bandwith of a telephone line).

SE has been advertised as being able to do this, but your ISP has to support it as BOTH calls from the modems will have to hit the same incoming router to work. Same with channel bundling on ISDN. I don't anyone who has done it, but if you get it towork I would love to know how you did it.

Two modems, Two Phone lines, Win98 SE will work but only if your isp supports it. Most don't.. Two Modems, One Phone line, NO WAY

Your question is ambiguous.Do you have two
computers you want to hook up or do you have
a computer with two modems?Technicaly you
can have two modems in one machine but you
can only use one at any given time.Not to
mention the irq assignment nightmare.It could
also give you big problems with other serial
devices (mouse)I fail to see what advantage
two modems woul give you.
