Can I double my line speed with 2 NICs?

Question

I have a ADSL service and would like to know if it is possible to put 2 network cards in my computer and run I guess you would call it Dual Speed with Dual Network cards so right now with 1 network card I am getting Max about 100KBps so if I put the 2nd in I would get 200KBps?

Hi! If you are getting approximately 100Kbps from the telco central office to your modem, that is the limiting factor Installing a second NIC would double the speed only between your modem and the NICs, but that is already much faster (10mbs) than the line speed from the telco to your modem
