    Hi

    Can you use 2 internet connections at the same time? I have access to 2 lans, one via a wired router and one via a wireless router, both connect to the internet. Could I somehow set the up the wireless so I can only use http on it for browsing the net and set up the wired so I cannot use http port on it but can use any other port for games, file sharing, etc...?

    Would it simply be a matter of opening and closing the relevant ports on the relevant routers and making sure both network interfaces are enabled in the pc? Just wondering how for instance, your browser would know which connection it should be using to connect to the net when two are active (does it even need to know, would it just work aslong as one does allow access to the internet?).

    Are there other ways of doing this?

    Thanks
